“Correct answers are essential... but they're part of the process,
they're not the product. The product is the math the kids walk
away with in their heads…”
Philip Daro, Director, Strategic Education Research Partnership (SERP)
For our children to be successful in today’s economy, they need a strong
foundation in math. Our math instruction is organized to support deep
mathematical thinking in four areas:
Number & Operations – students understand numbers, understand
meanings of operations, and can compute fluently.
Algebra – students understand patterns, represent and analyze, use
mathematical models and analyze change in different contexts.
Geometry & Measurement – students analyze characteristics of shapes,
describe spatial relationships, use visualization and reasoning to solve
problems, and understand measurable attributes.
Data Analysis & Probability – students formulate questions and gather
data to answer them, select and use methods to analyze data, develop and
evaluate inferences and predictions based on data, and understand and apply
basic concepts of probability.
