  • Honors Mathematics

     
    Honors Mathematics is for gifted and talented students who demonstrate mathematical understanding, problem solving, and reasoning skills. This program begins second trimester of grade three and continues through grade eight. Honors Mathematics is offered at all fourteen elementary buildings and all five junior high schools.
     
    Honors Mathematics students are able to demonstrate that they grasp concepts quickly, see patterns, and make connections across disciplines and among operations. Students’ thinking in mathematics is flexible. The critical objectives, aligned with the Common Core State Standards, allow students in the program to complete Algebra I during their eighth grade year and Geometry during their first year of high school.
