Hawthorn Mathematics Curriculum

The Hawthorn District 73 mission of mathematics instruction is to develop an education program that will involve, nurture, and enable all students to develop the knowledge and skills they need to function as mature, responsible, and productive citizens.

As of June 2010, Hawthorn began working with other districts in Illinois, as well as our Regional Office of Education on aligning our mathematics instruction to the new Common Core Standards for Mathematics which have been adopted by a majority of the 50 states.  The 2011-2012, and 2012-2013 school years are transition years and our teachers are focused on implementing these fewer, deeper and more specific mathematics concepts at every grade level.  We continue to emphasize big ideas in mathematics and our teams of teachers are in the process of developing specific grade level maps and common assessments which will guide our effective implementation of these new standards.  For more information on the new standards, please click on the link below.
