Math

Math is more than numbers and equations. Math is a universal language that doesn't need to be translated to be understood. Math can help you tell time, make you a better cook, and save you money while shopping.

Math teaches problem-solving skills and improves our reasoning abilities, which helps us think critically about the world and improves our ability to think logically about a situation.

No matter where you look, the laws of mathematics can be seen, and the problem-solving skills you learn can help you tackle problems in other areas of life. Learning and developing an understanding early prepares you for success later in life.

What students learn

Mathematical concepts

Students will demonstrate an understanding of mathematical concepts, operations, and relations while making mathematical and real-world connections. Students will develop an understanding of how and when to apply and use the mathematics they know to solve problems.

Procedural fluency

Students will learn procedures and algorithms based on a strong sense of numbers. They will develop fluency in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Students will also gain an understanding of the development and application of algorithms and procedures.

Strategies for problem solving

Students will analyze parts of complex mathematical tasks and identify where to begin the search for a solution. Students will select from a variety of problem-solving strategies and use multiple representations when appropriate. They will pursue solutions to various tasks from real-world situations and applications. They will find methods to verify their answers and will always question the reasonableness of solutions.

Mathematical Reasoning

Students will explore and communicate a variety of reasoning strategies to think through problems. Students will apply their logic to critique the thinking and strategies of others to develop and evaluate mathematical arguments.

Mathematical disposition

Students will hold the belief that mathematics is sensible, useful, and worthwhile. They will develop the habit of looking for and making use of patterns and mathematical structures. Students become effective problem solvers.

Mathematical Communication

Students will discuss, write, read, interpret, and translate ideas and concepts mathematically. As they progress, students will increase their use of mathematical language, terms and definitions.

"We will always have STEM with us. Some things will drop out of the public eye and will go away, but there will always be science, engineering, and technology. And there will always, always be mathematics."
