Course Description: The curriculum offers students the opportunity to experience real-world
applications, hands-on labs and interdisciplinary investigations. All students will be actively
engaged in developing mathematical understandings in real and relevant contexts. Students will
also utilize the Rigor and Readiness Program adopted by the DeKalb County Board of Education.
The Rigor and Readiness Program is a comprehensive, coherent, Common Core standards-based
school reform model. Rigor and Readiness brings together all of the elements of a sound
education – elements that educators and researchers agree are critical to a well-organized, high
performance school.

Standards for Mathematical Practice


1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 5. Use appropriate tools
strategically.
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 6. Attend to precision.
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 7. Look for and make use of
structure.
4. Model with mathematics. 8. Look for and express regularity in
repeated reasoning.

Curriculum Overview IS ONLY A GUIDE AND IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

GRADING SYSTEM: The DeKalb County School District believes that the most important
assessment of student learning shall be conducted by the teachers as they observe and evaluate
students in the context of ongoing classroom instruction. A variety of approaches, methodologies,
and resources shall be used to deliver educational services and to maximize each student’s
opportunity to succeed. Teachers shall evaluate student progress, report grades that represent the
student’s academic achievement, and communicate official academic progress to students and
parents in a timely manner through the electronic grading portal. See Board Policy IHA.
GRADING CATEGORIES *GRADE PROTOCOL
Formative Assessment (Pre-Assessment) –
0% A 90 – 100
Assessment During Learning – 25% B 80 – 89
Guided, Independent, or Group Practice – C 71 – 79
45% D 70
Summative Assessment or Assessment of F Below 70
Learning– 30%

Notes:
*English Learners (ELs) must not receive numerical or letter grades for the core content areas in
elementary and middle school during their first year of language development. A grade of CS or
CU must be assigned. This rule may be extended beyond the first year with approval from the EL
Studies Program. English Learners must receive a grade for ESOL courses.

DISTRICT EXPECTATIONS FOR SUCCESS


Semester progress reports shall be issued four and a half, nine and
thirteen and a half weeks into each semester. The progress of students
shall be evaluated frequently and plans shall be generated to remediate
