MathPlacer County Office of Education built foundational knowledge in conceptual math through work in two grants; Rigorous Instruction in Mathematics (RIMS) and the Students Understanding Complex Concepts Equals Student Success (SUCCESS). These grants laid a strong foundation for Common Core Mathematics instruction by building county and district leaders with conceptual understanding of math concepts and the strategies in which to engage students in a deeper learning of mathematics. 


ScienceThe Placer County Office of Education is pleased to bring the most up-to-date content regarding the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). These standards represent a significant shift not only in content, but in how students interact with curriculum and concepts.  Students should be exposed to novel phenomenon which motivate learning and allow them to tackle real world problems.
