Students develop the skills necessary for problem solving with computation being one of the critical tools. Creative thinking skills are also developed as students learn to choose and apply appropriate rules, facts and procedures. Math is also applied to other areas of the curriculum (Language Arts, Music, Physical Education etc.). Students are given the opportunity to discuss their thinking, explain their reasoning in math journals and ask questions. Moreover, students are encouraged to demonstrate their thinking by sharing their public records. The Mathematics expectations are organized into four strands:

  • Number and Operations
  • Operations and Algebraic Thinking
  • Geometry
  • Measurement and Data
