Math
  • 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.

    Standard Diploma

    • 3 standard credits, 1 verified credit
    • Courses completed to satisfy this requirement shall include at least two different course selections from among: algebra I, geometry, algebra functions, and data analysis, algebra II, or other mathematics courses approved by the board to satisfy this requirement. An approved computer science course credit earned by students may be considered a mathematics course credit.

    Advanced Diploma

    • 4 standard credits, 1 verified credit
    • Courses completed to satisfy this requirement shall include at least three different course selections from among: algebra I, geometry, algebra II, or other mathematics courses above the level of algebra II. The board shall approve courses to satisfy this requirement. An approved computer science course credit earned by students may be considered a mathematics course credit.
