Learning Areas




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.

K-12 Math Core Package


This year, Georgia’s K-12 Mathematics Standards will be implemented in kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms. These standards focus on strategic mathematical thinking and reasoning and are aligned to industry and workforce needs of the twenty-first century. The goal of mathematics education is to develop students’ math confidence to analyze and solve problems in real-life situations, develop abstract, logical, and critical thinking abilities to model mathematics.

Starting this fall and throughout the school year, you can visit Cobb Mathematics Department website to understand what your student is learning, how to support your student, and access to CTLS resources. This school year, your students will have access to custom digital courses grades K-12 in CTLS, textbooks for senior level math courses, and custom worktexts in grades K-8. Physical and digital manipulatives will be used to support hands-on learning and conceptual understanding in K-8 grade classrooms.
