curriculum standards & classroom practices.
Our math curriculum is solely based upon the Common Core Standards. These Standards define what students should understand and be able to do in their study of mathematics. Asking a student to understand something means asking a teacher to assess whether the student has understood it. But what does mathematical understanding look like? One hallmark of mathematical understanding is the ability to justify, in a way appropriate to the student’s mathematical maturity, why a particular mathematical statement is true or where a mathematical rule comes from. It is this type of mathematical thinking and reasoning that is at the core of our math instruction and practice.
We practice a balanced, handson approach to math instruction on Route #125. Students use manipulatives to solve problems, and we weave literacy and realworld experiences into our math instruction whenever possible through story problems, extended math responses, and math stories. We utilize many different tools to implement this curriculum and meet our standards goals. Technology, text books, workstations, and games, are just a few tools we use during this implementation. Box Cars & OneEyed Jacks are an example of the engaging, handson math instruction taking place on Route #125.
In 4th grade, we deliver math instruction through inclass, differentiated, flexible grouping. Students rotate through different handson math work stations to receive individualized instruction on a daily basis. This allows all students to be met & challenged at their own level of instruction.
