Math

 “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.
