Mathematics - Content Standards
This section is offered as a courtesy public service announcement. Please check
the WPS Curriculum page for details:
A high-quality mathematics program is essential for all students and provides every
student with the opportunity to choose among the full range of future career paths.
Mathematics, when taught well, is a subject of beauty and elegance, exciting in
its logic and coherence. It trains the mind to be analytic - providing the foundation
for intelligent and precise thinking.
To compete successfully in the worldwide economy, today's students must have a high
degree of comprehension in mathematics. For too long schools have suffered from
the notion that success in mathematics is the province of a talented few. Instead,
a new expectation is needed: all students will attain California's mathematics academic
content standards, and many will be inspired to achieve far beyond the minimum standards.
