Mathematics Department

The South Kingstown High School mathematics department believes that mathematics can and should be learned by all students. To accomplish this we have created an environment that has high expectations for all and provides needed support to students and their families. Teachers challenge all students to work to their highest potential and produce their best work. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are embedded in the curriculum for each math course defining what students should understand and be able to do in their study of mathematics.

Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2 are the primary focus for the first three years of high school, continuing through College Math, Pre-Calculus and Calculus depending on a student’s point of entry in 9th grade. In addition students may choose from a variety of electives offered. All students must take and receive credit for a minimum of one mathematics course each year. Mathematics teachers will make course recommendations based on which course is the most appropriate for each student to ensure his/her best opportunity for future success.
