    Loudoun County Public Schools actively engages students in a rigorous mathematics curriculum that supports students in making connections, critical thinking, reasoning, problem solving, and communicating about their learning.  We are preparing our students to pursue higher education, to compete in a global workforce, and to be informed citizens which requires rigorous mathematical knowledge and skills. Students have opportunities to gain an understanding of fundamental ideas in number sense, computation, measurement, geometry, probability, data analysis and statistics, and algebra and functions through engaging in collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. For more information, please refer to the LCPS Program of Studies.
     
    Every seven years, the Virginia Department of Education revises the Standards of Learning for Mathematics. The proposed 2023 Mathematics Standards of Learning are a component of the Virginia Mathematics Pathway Initiative (VMPI). VMPI is a joint initiative among the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) and the Virginia Community College System (VCCS). The Initiative supports the Profile of a Virginia Graduate by redefining mathematics pathways for students in the Commonwealth to address the knowledge, skills, experiences, and attributes that students must attain to be successful in college and/or the workforce and to be "life ready". 
     
    The VMPI proposes significant changes to the course offerings and progressions in secondary mathematics. These changes include the creation of Essential Concepts courses in Grades 8-10 to replace Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra II courses and increased options for higher level mathematics courses in Grades 11-12, including Advanced Placement courses.
     
    More detailed Information can be found on the VDOE Virginia Mathematics Pathways Initiative website and the VDOE community information session recordings can be viewed on VDOE's YouTube Channel.
     
    Current course offerings can be found in the 21-22 LCPS Program of Studies.
