The Mathematics curriculum provides a comprehensive mathematical experience incorporating the five strands of mathematical competency. These include conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, strategic competence, adaptive reasoning, and productive disposition. GO Math! is a rigorous curriculum proven to build students’ mathematical knowledge from the basics to higher-order thinking and critical problem-solving in grades K through 5. Real-life problems and situations are applied to math concepts so that students experience information to develop mathematical insights and reasoning.
In 6th grade, they will use Illustrative Mathematics a problem-based core mathematics curriculum that develops students’ mathematical thinking skills through questioning, discussion, and real-world contexts and connections.
Students are provided opportunities to problem solve and think creatively using technology and manipulatives. These components of our elementary Mathematics program develop student understanding of basic skills and fundamental algorithms as well as providing opportunities for students to construct mathematical knowledge. Our mathematics program encourages students to work cooperatively, communicate mathematically, and make connections between important mathematical topics and the real world.
Our Mathematics curriculum consists of the following broad categories:
- Numbers and Operations
- Algebraic Thinking
- Data Analysis and Probability
- Mathematical Practices
