The adoption of the North Carolina Standard Course of Study for Mathematics (NCSCoS) marks a new leap forward in the continual process of improving learning for all our students. These standards are based on a philosophy of teaching and learning mathematics that is consistent with the most current research and exemplary practices.

Within the NCSCoS are The Standards for Mathematical Content and Practice. The content standards provide a clear focus of content that must be mastered at each grade level, K-8.  High School Standards specify the mathematics all students should study to be college and career ready. They are organized by conceptual categories or themes: Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Modeling, Geometry, and Statistics and Data. Equally important are the Standards for Mathematical Practice, describing the behaviors or ‘habits of mind’ of mathematically proficient students.

We welcome all to join us in our journey of continuous improvement for the students of North Carolina.
