The Mathematics team in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction is committed to providing high quality support to teachers and school leaders, students, and parents throughout the district. Through intentional and strategic planning, our goal is to help schools actualize the district’s vision for high-quality teaching and learning.
To enact the vision of high-quality teacher and learning in mathematics classrooms, students will be given the opportunity to do the following:
Engage in the most important content
Build understanding based on prior knowledge
Learn the “hows and whys” of mathematics and apply this understanding to the world around them
Do the math and do the thinking
To enact the vision of high-quality teaching and learning in mathematics classrooms, teachers will utilize the following practices:
Plan and execute standards-aligned lessons with intentionality and focus (data-informed instruction)
Promote student mathematical discourse
Utilize visual and symbolic representations and help students to make connections
Emphasize literacy skills for mathematical proficiency
