Math

math

The study of Mathematics provides a foundation for the learning of science, technology, and for the interpretation of quantitative information in other subjects. It teaches students how to reason logically and develop skills useful in everyday life.

Greater understanding of mathematics will be essential for today's students for them to be successful in tomorrow's job market.  Students will need to be proficient in:

 

  • understanding mathematics

  • computing fluently

  • applying concepts to solve problems

  • reasoning logically

  • engaging in mathematics to make sense of it. 

 

The links in this section are designed to connect and support schools as they work collaboratively to continuously improve knowledge and skills necessary for effective mathematics instruction, including the use of appropriate assessments to inform practice.

K-2 Mathematics - Bridges in Mathematics

Developed with initial support from the National Science Foundation, Bridges offers a unique blend of problem-solving and skill building in a clearly articulated program that moves through each grade level with common models, teaching strategies, and objectives.

A Bridges classroom features a combination of whole-group, small-group, and independent activities. Lessons incorporate increasingly complex visual models - seeing, touching, working with manipulatives, and sketching ideas - to create pictures in the mind's eye that helps learners invent, understand, and remember mathematical ideas. By encouraging students to explore, test, and justify their reasoning, the curriculum facilitates the development of mathematical thinking for students of all learning styles.

 

3-5 Mathematics - Investigation in Number, Data and Space

Investigations in Number, Data, and Space is a K-5 mathematics curriculum designed to engage students in making sense of mathematical ideas. Six major goals guided the development of this curriculum. The curriculum is designed to support students to make sense of mathematics and learn that they can be mathematical thinkers, focus on computational fluency with whole numbers as a major goal of the elementary grades, provide substantive work in important areas of mathematics—rational numbers, geometry, measurement, data, and early algebra—and connections among them, emphasize reasoning about mathematical ideas, communicate mathematics content and pedagogy to teachers and engage the range of learners in understanding mathematics.

 

6-8 Mathematics - Connected Math Project (CMP)

CMP helps students and teachers develop understanding of important mathematical concepts, skills, procedures, and ways of thinking and reasoning, in number, geometry, measurement, algebra, probability and statistics. CMP is based on research, and was field-tested in diverse sites across the country.
