During the elementary years, instruction in mathematics seeks to build a solid foundation in the students’ conceptual understanding of mathematics as well as their procedural skills. This strong base provides the underpinnings for students as they move into higher levels of mathematics, where they will be applying their knowledge of math to real-world situations.
Curriculum writers play a vital role in the instruction of our students. Our curriculum writers are responsible for working with their grade level colleagues to develop, implement, and evaluate the subject area scope and sequence. Additionally, curriculum writers periodically attend meetings at the end of the school day where they receive information and share ideas with other curriculum writers. They, in turn, then disseminate information from these meetings to their grade level colleagues. Curriculum writers also provide training for their campuses when needed.
