Math

Throughout our new curriculum, My Math, we use tools that ensure our students are on the right track to meeting the Common Core State Standards and embracing the Mathematical practices.

 

My Math is a very focused program that narrows the scope so that students can have a deeper experience with Math.  Modeling, reasoning, and productive deposition activities support the Standards for Mathematical Practices.
