Our curriculum is aligned with the New York State Learning Standards and Mathematical Practices standards. The Mathematical standards require students to develop a depth of understanding and the ability to apply mathematics to real-life situations. In kindergarten through grade 8 mathematics, the standards lay a solid foundation in whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals. These elements support a student’s ability to learn and apply more demanding mathematics concepts and procedures in middle and high school.
Children mature mathematically at different paces and demonstrate various levels of learning behaviors. These learning habits develop over time and often emerge during certain learning activities and through the study of specific, critical mathematics topics and standards.
Students of mathematics have daily opportunities to develop how to think and reason mathematically. They develop the behaviors of mathematically proficient students who:
- Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
- Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
- Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
- Model with Mathematics.
- Use appropriate tools strategically.
- Attend to precision.
- Look for and make use of structure.
- Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
