Mathematics

The mathematics curriculum hasbeen created to address the curriculum and scope and sequenceprescribed by New York State. Students are taught the foundations ofproblem solving and are provided with many manipulatives in order tofurther develop their understanding of various concepts.Instructional bands covered:

PROBLEM SOLVING

bullet

Pursuing open-ended problems and extended problem-solving projects

bullet

Investigating and formulating questions from problem situation

bullet

Representing situations verbally, numerically, graphically, geometrically, or symbolically

COMMUNICATION

bullet

Discussing, writing, reading, and listening to mathematical ideas

REASONING

bullet

Reasoning in spatial contexts

bullet

Reasoning with proportions

bullet

Reasoning from graphs

bullet

Reasoning inductively and deductively
