Welcome to CCSD Mathematics Department
The mission of the Cobb County Mathematics Program is to provide a meaningful experience-based curriculum, which is
engaging, challenging, developmentally appropriate and student centered. The K-12 program provides an emphasis on problem
solving strategies, using manipulatives and technology as appropriate, and supported by a variety of resources and
assessments. Our students will become problem solvers who are mathematically literate and apply mathematical concepts and
skills for relevant and real life experiences.
The State of Georgia completed the Quality Core Curriculum
(QCC) for mathematics for students that last entered high school as a freshman in 2007. In 2005, the State of Georgia adopted
the Georgia Performance Standards
(GPS) and began implementing the math curriculum for K-2 and grade 6 followed by 3-5 and grade 7 in 2006 and each subsequent year another
grade level was implemented. In 2010, the State of Georgia adopted the
Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) and
implementation K-9 began in 2012, grade 10 implementation in 2013 and grade 11 implementation in 2014.
In addition to building strong concepts and skills, the Standards for Mathematical Practice
develop perseverance in solving problems, reasoning and explaining, modeling and using tools strategically, and seeing structure and generalizing.
These practices rest on important processes and proficiencies’ with longstanding importance in mathematics education. Every
lesson should seek to build student expertise in Content and Practice standards.
Accelerated Math courses are offered 6th -12th grades. In addition, students have the opportunity to apply for
Multivariable Calculus through Distance Learning with The Georgia Institute of Technology
Distance Calculus at Georgia Tech Prospective Student Meetings
April 22 at 7pm
(For students that have completed
AP Calculus AB or BC).
Locations: Harrison, Lassiter and Walton.
For those not able to make it on April 22, Wheeler will hold a meeting on April 28
Summer Opportunities for Students:
