Mathematics


In fifth grade, we have begun a new math program called Everyday Math. Throughout the school year students will be working on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole numbers, integers and rational numbers. They will also work on number sense (patterns, place value, etc.), geometry, measurement, data analysis and problem solving. Students will have Student Reference Books (SRBs) to assist in their learning. They will also work out of journals/workbooks as well as on worksheets called study links that are work to be completed at home. Download the Curriculum Features of Everyday Math for additional information. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) has also published Curriculum Focal Points for Prekindergarten through Grade 8 Mathematics: A Quest for Coherence to provide support information on how the Everyday Math Program aligns with national math standards.

In sixth grade we use a mathematics program called Connected Math. Throughout the school year students will be working on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole numbers, integers and rational numbers. They will also work on area, perimeter, volume and surface area of geometric shapes and solids. Lastly they will work on pre-algebra using functions and variables. Problems solving in nature, the Connected Math program introduces, teaches and practices mathematical concepts in real life situations. Students are asked to read, evaluate and solve multiple problems that could occur in their world. Download the Curriculum Features of Connected Math for additional information.
