Did you miss our Parent Math Night? See the presentation here.
You Cubed is a valuable resource created by Stanford Math Professor Jo Boaler. Her ongoing work to communicate the importance of conceptual undersatnding to support growth mindest in math has been an inspiration to our ongoing professional development.
This important site visually communicates the progression of concepts students are exposed to at each grade. The progression videos are worth a look as each stage of math development is important to be sure students have good math foundations in place and don't learn that standard algorithm too soon!
Problem Solvers, not Robots
Flexibility to solve problems is our goal! New situations present themselves daily and students are continuously working on applying skills instead of plucking numbers.
