Student Development

The Lemont High School Mathematics Department believes students should develop the following characteristics:

  • Understanding of concepts and procedures
  • Building of mathematical skills through high-quality instruction
  • Mastery of material aligned with the Illinois Learning Standards

Courses offered within the mathematics curriculum help students learn challenging mathematics ideas through the implementation of the Common Core State Standards Mathematical Practices. The department is committed to properly integrating technology into all facets of the curriculum in order to enhance the instructional process.

Student Expectations

Based on their abilities and course level, students shall study the following content standards to be college and career ready:

  • Numbers and Quantity Standard
  • Algebra Standard
  • Geometry Standard
  • Function Standard
  • Statistics and Probability Standard
  • Modeling Standard

Common Core Mathematical Practices

Teachers and students use the following Common Core Mathematical Practices during the learning process:

  • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively
  • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
  • Model with mathematics
  • Use appropriate tools strategically
  • Attend to precision
  • Look for and make use of structure
  • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

Grading Standards

Student grades are determined based on their performance on homework and final examinations, as well as cumulative proficiency. A graphing calculator is required for all courses in the mathematics curriculum; students should consult with their instructors for more details.

Required Calculator

All Lemont High School students are required to have the TI-Nspire CX or TI-Nspire CX2 calculator. This calculator is used in all math classes and some science classes. Each of these calculators also can be used on standardized tests and in college coursework.

Please note that another version of the calculator, the TI-Nspire CX CAS, cannot be used on standardized tests.

Integrated Math - Frequently Asked Questions

Prior to incorporating the Integrated Math curriculum during the 2014-15 school year, the Mathematics Department developed a resource to answer potential questions from students and their parents/guardians about the transition from the "traditional" curriculum to Integrated Math.
