Listed below are instructional highlights for mathematics in Capital as well as links to more detailed information for Delaware and school level resources.

  • In kindergarten, the standards follow successful international models and recommendations from the National Research Council’s Early Math Panel report, by focusing kindergarten work on the number core: learning how numbers correspond to quantities, and learning how to put numbers together and take them apart (the beginnings of addition and subtraction).

  • In elementary school, we provide students with a solid foundation in whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and decimals.

  • The standards stress not only procedural skill but also conceptual understanding, to make sure students are learning and absorbing the critical information they need to succeed at higher levels.

  • Having built a strong foundation, students are ready for the introduction of geometry, algebra & probability, and statistics in middle school.

  • The high school standards add depth and complexity by calling on students to apply mathematical concepts in dynamic ways to problem solve, reason and communicate ideas, identify and analyze trends from data, and use modern technology. Quantities and their relationships in physical, economic, public policy, social and everyday situations are modeled using mathematical and statistical methods. This prepares students to apply these concepts to novel situations, as college students and employees regularly do. (link to Dover High School Program of Studies)
