The Sioux Falls School District’s high school mathematics curriculum is guided by the Common Core Standards. These Standards define for all students what they must know in the following strands: number sense, measurement, geometry, algebra and statistics and probability. Student instruction includes demonstration of conceptual understanding, procedural reasoning, communicating, and applying mathematics.

Students demonstrate ability to use technology including graphing calculators, smart boards, and mathematical software specific to courses. 

The Common Core Standards provide a listing of essential core content to be taught and learned. They are designed to guide the planning of instruction and to anchor the assessment of learning. The Alternate Content Standards for each area expand the developmental spectrum of the Common Core Standards for students with significant disabilities while guiding instruction and assure all students access to the general education curriculum.
