• Math Curriculum and Pathways

    In alignment with our equity plan, CHCCS is working to ensure all students have a strong conceptual understanding of mathematical concepts and access to rigorous curriculum. Additionally, our new math placement plan is creating access and opportunity to advanced (compacted, honors and AP) courses for ALL students.

    Note for Families and students:

    Effective with the 2018-19 school year, North Carolina will have new K-8 Math Standards. CHCCS has started working with teachers this year to understand and unpack the revisions. The resources above reflect the current standards and resources from the 2017-18 school year. Visit the NCDPI Mathematics Website if you would like to learn more about the new standards.

    Updates Regarding MIddle School Math Placement for 2018-19 

    Recently, the North Carolina General Assembly passed House Bill 986 (see Part 2 Section 2a), which impacts math placement for students.  This bill states that any student scoring a Level 5 on this year’s math End-of-Grade (EOG) exam will be placed in the next highest math class. For example, a student taking Math 7 who achieved a Level 5 will be placed into Math 1.  This means students will skip the entire 8th grade curriculum. For many students, this will be an accurate placement.

    However, families considering an accelerated math pathway for their child should discuss the following: current math classroom performance, work habits, motivation, extracurricular activities, individual learning styles, and academic needs as they pertain to math class. These accelerated pathways move at a faster pace and require students to independently master content they may have missed.

     If your child is moving into a Compacted Math class or Math 1, please review the materials located at the bottom of this page. These resources enable students and families to access the content which was missed. It is expected for students who missed previous content to carefully review the materials to help ensure a smooth transition to the advanced course.

    The information below outlines the students who received automatic placements at each grade level.
