A Message from Our Principal

As we continue our conversation about the exciting changes taking place in our world and school, we will shift our focus to math!

When we were growing up the focus of our math class was on how things worked. We were taught the most efficient way to solve a problem. Fluency was the key. There has been a significant challenge with this approach. A great many students struggled to understand and apply the mathematics in problem solving. They believed they were not good at math. There also was a high failure rate in high school and college algebra.

Everyone can be great at math! The only way to get smarter is to do hard things! Our expanded focus now is on how, why, and when. We are still focused on the how. There is still one correct answer and our end goal is fluency with understanding.

We are focusing students on when we should use mathematics. You will see an increase in real world, contextual problems. Many times these problems will come first instead of at the end of instruction.

We are also focusing students on the why of mathematics and helping students develop conceptual under-standing. Many times this entails moving students from working with contextual problems into models (physical and pictorial) and then into different algorithms. This is the area where you will see the biggest differences in how we learned math in school. You will see more ways to represent and solve problems.

Ways you can help your students…

  • Ask them questions and use what they know
  • Communicate with the teacher
  • Learn with us!

Your partner in learning and leading,

Dr. Cagle
