Math Enrichment
The classroom teacher is the primary source of mathematics enrichment, providing extension opportunities for all students. S/he may work with flexible groups of students who demonstrate, through classroom performance, the need for learning extensions in mathematics. REACH teachers support classroom teachers with differentiating instruction and developing rigorous activities to meet students' learning needs.
Math Acceleration
Acceleration, as defined by the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC), is "a strategy of progressing through education at rates faster or ages younger than the norm."
Beginning in Grade 3, REACH Mathematics is an accelerated program in which standards are compacted, resulting in students covering more content than is typically covered in a school year. This leads to students completing curriculum ahead of gradelevel standards.

Elementary School
Enrichment (K  Grade 2)
REACH teachers support early elementary teachers with instructional strategies and resources to help enhance mathematics curriculum in Kindergarten through Grade 2.
REACH Mathematics (Grades 35)
REACH Mathematics is a compacted and accelerated course, meeting daily during the student's regularly scheduled Mathematics block. Students successfully completing REACH Mathematics in elementary school are "doubleaccelerated" in the area of math and prepared to enroll in PreAlgebra in Grade 6.
Middle School
SingleAccelerated Mathematics
The singleaccelerated mathematics pathway begins with PreAlgebra in Grade 7. Students identified for PreAlgebra demonstrate a mastery of Grade 6 math content prior to their 6th grade year. Students in singleaccelerated math are prepared for Algebra in Grade 8. This pathway leads students to Advanced Placement (AP^{©}) Calculus in Grade 12.
DoubleAccelerated Mathematics
The doubleaccelerated mathematics pathway begins with PreAlgebra, or the equivalent of Grade 8 mathematics standards, in Grade 6. Students identified for PreAlgebra demonstrate mastery of Grade 7 math content prior to their 6th grade year. Students in doubleaccelerated math are prepared for Algebra in Grade 7 and Geometry in Grade 8. This pathway leads students to Advanced Placement^{©} (AP^{©}) Calculus in Grade 11, and Advanced College Project (ACP) mathematics in Grade 12.
High School
Honors Mathematics
Honorslevel mathematics courses are rigorous and require students to demonstrate a sophisticated ability to approach and solve rich mathematics problems. Honorslevel mathematics prepares students for Advanced Placement^{©} (AP^{©}) Math courses.
Advanced Placement (AP^{©}) Mathematics
Advanced Placement^{©} (AP^{©}) Mathematics courses expose students to the type of scholarly environment and rigor that is comparable to an introductory college course. Students are strongly encouraged to take the AP^{© }exam in spring.
Advanced College Project (ACP) Mathematics
ACP is a partnership between Elmhurst District 205 and Indiana University (IU) in which students are dually enrolled in college coursework while in high school. Students earn college credit for completed ACP courses and receive an Indiana University transcript at the conclusion of their high school academic career. ACP Math courses are currently in development.
