Secondary Math Curriculum

Beliefs:

  1. Students learn mathematics best by emphasizing and engaging in problem solving, communicating, reasoning and proof, making connects, and using representations. 
     
  2. Students who are proficient and literate in mathematics confidently and successfully use mathematics, computation skills and numbers to problem-solve, reason and analyze information.  Students can utilize multiple strategies to solve problems.
     
  3. Students will gain a depth of understanding that goes beyond procedural fluency and into conceptual understanding and application. 

‚ÄčExplanation of Standards:

Yukon Public Schools math curriculum is based on the Oklahoma Priority Academic Student Standards (PASS).

In 2016 the Oklahoma State Legislature will approve new Oklahoma Academic Standards for Math (OAS-Math).  The OAS-Math standards are coherently and developmentally appropriate standards for kindergarten through grade twelve developed by professional educators and approved by Oklahoma legislators.  The standards tell us what students are expected to learn in a specific course.  Yukon Public Schools will use these new standards to guide curricular decisions.

Testing:

State testing in math occurs in the 3rd-8th grades in the form of Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) and in high school Algebra I, Algebra 2 and Geometry with End-of-Instruction (EOI) exams.

For more information on state requirements and testing items, view the Math Blueprints and Parent Teacher Student Guides (PTSGs) on the Oklahoma State Department website.  http://sde.ok.gov/sde/documents/2013-09-05/blue-prints-plds-item-specs

On the national level, students can take math assessments for the ACT, SAT, Advanced Placement courses and many others.

At the high school level Yukon students have the opportunity to take a variety of courses in mathematics.  A.C.T. has identified the mathematics college preparatory course sequence that contributed most to a student’s college readiness as Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and Calculus.  Yukon Public Schools also offers AP courses that may allow students to earn college credit.
