    Starting with the 2023-2024 School Year, Forsyth County Schools will transition from Georgia Standards of Excellence to Georgia's K-12 Mathematics Standards. Teams of Forsyth County teachers have worked collaboratively to take the state standards and create curriculum documents that best serve the needs of Forsyth County students.


    Scope and Sequence
    For a specific grade level or course scope and sequence, please contact your child's teacher.
     
    For high school course titles, sequences, and descriptions: High School Math Course Digest
    Beginning in grade 6, there are various course sequences (e.g., support, standard, accelerated, etc.). For a tabular view of these sequences: Math Course Sequence Grades 6-12. If you are interested in watching a ten-minute video that explains middle and high school math paths, please view this Math Path Video Explanation.
     

    K-12 Mathematics Trajectory
    Elementary students are exposed to number sense, computation, geometry, measurement, data and statistics, algebraic thinking and patterns and daily problem solving starting in kindergarten. Middle school students are exposed to all of these strands, with a daily focus on algebraic skills and real-world problem solving. High school students expand on the foundations set in grades K-8 and have opportunities to take a program of study in mathematics that suits their current and post-secondary needs, including Advanced Placement (AP) math courses and distance learning calculus classes through the Georgia Institute of Technology.
     
     
    K-5 Math Family Engagement
    Nurture students' thinking outside the mathematics classroom by attending a community family math festival and/or reading our K-5 topic family math letters.
