Mathematics education, kindergarten through grade twelve, provides curriculum, instruction, and assessment which
students an equitable opportunity to become mathematically literate citizens. Students acquire confidence,
competence, enabling skills, and those habits of mind which assist them to solve problems both independently
and collaboratively, in mathematics courses and in other endeavors. Communication of reasoning using the
language of mathematics, making connections between mathematical ideas and the real world, and using technology
to facilitate reasoning and problem solving are vital parts of the mathematics program. Outcomes aligned
with the Maryland Content Standards have been developed to support this curriculum.
In elementary schools, mathematics is a broad-based curriculum in which students build a strong foundation in
algebra patterns and functions; geometry; measurement; statistics; probability; and, number relations and
computation. Students demonstrate these concepts through the processes of problem solving, communication,
reasoning and proof, and making connections to the real world.
In middle and high schools, students continue to refine and extend mathematics knowledge. All students are
expected to master
algebra and geometry. Most students will continue the study of mathematics after geometry by taking subsequent
courses in Algebra II, Trigonometry, Precalculus, and Advanced Placement Calculus. Students are given
to enhance mathematics studies by taking courses such as Foundations of College Mathematics, Advanced Placement
Statistics, and Advanced Placement Computer Science.

The following message will be sent via phone, email, and text message to all parents and guardians at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 1, 2022:
If you are active military personnel, a civilian or federal employee working and/or living on federal property, your child has received or will receive a form to be completed and returned to school. If your child is not attending school in person, please find a blank form attached to this email. It is very important that we receive the completed form from you, as this is a means of funding that will impact your child’s school system. Persons working on federal property, please be sure to complete the box indicating the specific location of your employment. The forms should be returned to school with your child no later than Friday, November 11, 2022. Blank forms are also available on www.hcps.org on the Resources for Parents page under ‘Forms and Documents.’ Please contact your school if you have any questions.

Maryland legislation now requires notification of parent/guardians when a student meal account balance becomes low.
This is to notify you that parents and guardians will soon begin to receive monthly automated communications via phone and email when your student’s meal account reaches $2.60. Notification at this amount will ensure you’re aware you have funds remaining for approximately one meal.
Students without funds on their account will still receive a meal that is charged to their account but will not be able to purchase any snack items, even with cash. Consequently, families with a balance LESS THAN $0 will receive a weekly call notifying that your account balance needs to be paid.
We encourage families to login to your MySchoolBucks account and set your own balance reminders above $2.60 to avoid receiving the monthly or weekly notices. Please note, if you opt out of the balance alerts when they begin, you will be opting yourself out of receiving all HCPS outreach communications.
Federal waivers allowing universally free school meals ended June 30, 2022 – students who do not qualify for meal benefits or whose applications for meal benefits from previous years expired must pay $2.50 for lunch in elementary schools or $2.60 for lunch in secondary schools. The online meal benefit application is available at www.hcpsmenus.com.
If you are unsure of your MySchoolBucks account or balance information, contact Food and Nutrition Services at 410-638-4078 for assistance.
