OCSA’s math courses are aligned to the Common Core State Standards and utilize the College Preparatory Mathematics (CPM) curriculum for Math II through Integrated III Enhanced. This curriculum is problem-based and collaborative in nature and quite different from traditional math textbooks. It is very rigorous, requiring students to participate in high-level discussions of ideas, and to focus on the process of their work, not just the content. Students must think critically, communicate, collaborate, and create. Because this curriculum is quite unique, there may be an adjustment period for your student as they adapt to the new curriculum, and our teachers will do their best to ensure your child’s success in math.
