Our Math Program Values

Intentional Exploration: Teachers use open-ended investigations to help students see patterns, raise questions, and make discoveries.
Differentiation: Teachers offer choices, provide manipulatives, and increase rigor to meet students at their individual levels.
Ownership: Students learn to see themselves as mathematicians through choices about how to approach their work, opportunities to share their thinking, and real-world situations in which to apply their knowledge.
Communication: Students often work in partnerships and groups to learn from each other and grow as mathematicians.
Flexibility: Students learn multiple approaches and ultimately the most effective and efficient strategies to solve math problems.
Justification: Teachers require students to explain how they solved a math problem, reflect on the efficacy of the strategies they used, and defend their solutions and thought processes with mathematical reasoning.
