Mathematics. High School Curriculum Objectives.
Boston Public Schools, MA.
This document lists mathematics objectives for Boston high school students. All objectives are presented in two columns. The left-hand column states each objective in general terms and gives an idea of its scope. The right-hand column gives a specific example of what students should be able to do when the objective is achieved. Objectives are provided for: (1) basic mathematics/level six; (2) general mathematics/level seven; (3) pre-algebra (algebra I prerequisites); (4) algebra I; (5) geometry; (6) algebra II; (7) trigonometry; (8) advanced mathematics; and (9) differential and integral calculus. Each part begins with introductory comments and includes a list of the areas/sections into which the objectives are divided. For example, objectives for basic mathematics/level six (designed for students who enter high school without having passed the Massachusetts Basic Skills test in mathematics) are divided into: numbers/numeration; computation; fractions; decimals/percents; measurement; geometry; estimating, graphs, and other areas; and basic mathematics and careers. The document also includes an introductory section (discussing how objectives were developed, course sequence, placing students in sequence, issues raised by the objectives, and others areas) and a list of 16 goals.(JN)
