Teacher Recommendation
Curricular goals interwoven throughout the mathematics program are that students will:
learn to communicate mathematically (QCC)
learn to use mathematics in their daily lives (QCC)
become proficient with appropriate computational tools and techniques (QCC)
learn to reason mathematically (QCC)
become mathematical problem solvers (QCC)
These goals will provide the direction for assessment and instruction. Attainment of these goals
is facilitated by the students’ demonstration of the following Academic Knowledge and Skills
(AKS).
