Norton City Schools




The Mathematics Courses of Study are based on the Ohio's Learning Standards.  

The State Board of Education has adopted Ohio's Learning Standards in Mathematics. The Kindergarten - Grade 12 standards will be in full use in Ohio classrooms by 2014-2015, when tests matched to the standards are in place.

These mathematics model curricula were written by Ohio educators to support the implementation of Ohio's Learning Standards in Mathematics. In March 2011 the State Board of Education adopted model curricula to match the standards. This document will grow and change over time.

Everyday Math K-5

Everyday Math K-5 Everyday Mathematics is a research-based curriculum, developed as part of the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project. Everyday Mathematics reflects the state and national goals for mathematics and includes these features:

    A curriculum that explores mathematical content beyond basic arithmetic
    A problem-solving approach based on everyday situations
    Frequent, varied practice of basic skills
    An instructional approach that revisits concepts regularly
    An emphasis on communication and teamwork
    A commitment to home/school partnerships

In the past few decades, there has been a tremendous increase in the importance of mathematics in the workplace and daily life. In order to succeed in this information- and technology-oriented environment, our children need to learn a range of sophisticated mathematical knowledge that extends far beyond basic calculation skills. Everyday Mathematics is a program that will prepare children for the future and enable them to achieve at high levels.

Connected Math 6-8

Connected Math 6-8 The Connected Math Project was developed for 6-8 grade students at Michigan State University with funds from the National Science Foundation.  The program has been rated as the highest of 12 middle school mathematics curricula, stating that it "contains both in-depth mathematics content and excellent instructional support."  Additionally, the U.S. Department of Education recognized CMP with its highest recognition of "exemplary status."  Of 61 programs reviewed only five received this high recognition and Connected Math was the only middle school program identified as exemplary.
The program offers a complete curriculum in the four major mathematical strands: number, geometry and measurement, algebra, and data analysis and probability.

Big Ideas Mathematics 9-12

Big Ideas Mathematics 9-12

Program Overview

Big Ideas Math is a complete middle school math program developed with the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Content and Standards for Mathematical Practice as its foundation. It is the only program to offer multiple pathways through middle school mathematics. The Regular Pathway prepares students for Algebra 1 or Integrated 1 in 9th grade. The Compacted Pathway and Advanced Pathway are for accelerated learners who will progress on to Geometry or Integrated 2 in 9th grade.


Big Ideas Math has been systematically developed using learning and instructional theory to ensure the quality of instruction. Students gain a deeper understanding of math concepts by narrowing their focus to fewer topics at each grade level. Students master content through inductive reasoning opportunities, engaging activities that provide deeper understanding, concise stepped-out examples, rich thought-provoking exercises, and a continual building on what has been previously taught.


Big Ideas Math delivers a unique and revolutionary curriculum providing a balanced instructional approach of discovery and direct instruction. This approach opens doors to abstract thought, reasoning, and inquiry as students persevere to answer the Essential Questions that drive instruction. Clearly stepped-out examples complete the lesson and provide students with the precise language and structure necessary to build mathematical understanding and proficiency. The unique teaching edition provides teachers with complete instructional support from a master teacher.
