Welcome to Math Class! In math this year we will be using and sharing multiple strategies when solving math problems! Through developing habits of a mathematician, your child will be able to critically think, problem solve and persevere through mathematical challenges. By praising the effort and process, instead of the result, they will see math knowledge as attainable and accessible to everyone, including themselves! We use the Eureka math curriculum and follow the Common Core Standards. We use use the approach of Cognitively Guided Instruction which focuses on enriching their mathematical reasoning and problem solving skills based on the knowledge they already possess. Through this they develop a deeper knowledge of number sense and mathematical patterns!
