North Carolina Mathematics Standard Course of Study. Revised.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Education, Raleigh.
North Carolina has had a Standard Course of Study since 1988. The most recent revisions of the state mathematics curriculum occurred in 1989 (K-8) and 1992 (9-12). The intent of the North Carolina Mathematics Standard Course Study is to establish competency goals and objectives for the teaching and learning of mathematics in North Carolina. The competency goals and objectives are organized within four strands: (1) Number Sense, Numeration, and Numerical Operations; (2) Spatial Sense, Measurement, and Geometry; (3) Patterns, Relationships, and Functions; and (4) Statistics, Probability, and Discrete Mathematics. The mathematics program is designed in grade spans that parallel the developmental stages of the students--grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. The elementary program focuses on students actively engaged in the development of mathematical understanding by using manipulatives, working independently and cooperatively to solve problems, conducting investigations and recording findings. Middle grade students expand their skills to compute with all real numbers and are challenged to apply their prior knowledge and experience in new and more difficult situations. The basic high school mathematics program features courses from Introductory Mathematics through Advanced Placement Calculus. (ASK)
