Math Vision Statement

Our mission is to provide a high quality, challenging and accessible mathematics education to our students.
We believe the following:
  • Learning mathematics is maximized when teachers focus on mathematical thinking and reasoning.
  • Learning mathematics is enhanced when content is placed in context and is connected to other subject areas and when students are given multiple opportunities to apply mathematics in meaningful ways as part of the learning process.
  • Computational skills and number concepts are essential components of the mathematics curriculum.
  • It is our responsibility to enable all students to formulate, analyze, and solve problems proficiently.
  • Students use diverse strategies and different algorithms to solve problems, and teachers must recognize and take advantage of these alternative approaches to help students develop a better understanding of mathematics.
  • The assessment of mathematical understanding must be aligned with the content taught and must incorporate multiple sources of information, including standardized tests, quizzes, observations, performance tasks, and mathematical investigations.
