Mathematics is a science of pattern and order; a way of thinking, communicating, and learning about the world. King George County Schools offer a variety of academic programming to meet the needs of our students. The goal of the mathematics program in King George County is to provide an environment for all students to actively build an understanding of mathematics as they also learn to value mathematics and develop confidence in their ability to learn and do mathematics in purposeful ways. Successful learning involves investigating, verifying, exploring, explaining, discovering, conjecturing, describing, reasoning, and sense making. Students will be given opportunities to formulate, represent, and solve mathematical problems using a variety of appropriate strategies while developing reasoning skills to justify their solutions as they work towards mathematical proficiency. Instruction is guided by the Virginia Mathematics Standards of Learning.

Teaching and Learning for Understanding--Everyone Mathematically Proficient

Virginia Mathematics Pathways Initiative (VMPI) –   

  • The Virginia Mathematics Pathways Initiative (VMPI) is a joint initiative of the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) and the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) to consider how to modernize and update math instruction to Virginia’s K-12 students to prepare them all to be life ready and succeed in their post-secondary pursuits.

  • VMPI is a proposal to modernize and update Virginia’s mathematics curriculum in grades K-12 to align instruction with the essential knowledge and skills students need to succeed in the 21st century economy. The proposals would update Virginia's Mathematics Standards of Learning and Virginia’s public school divisions would then be responsible for creating courses and designing curricula to implement those state standards, as they do now.
