Math Department

In SAU 70 mathematics classrooms, all children, at developmentally appropriate levels, are learning:

  • to value mathematics,
  • to see connections within mathematics,
  • to see connections between mathematics and other areas,
  • to be confident in their ability to do mathematics,
  • to become mathematical problem solvers,
  • to communicate mathematically, and
  • to reason mathematically.

This is accomplished and assessed in classrooms where:

  • inquiry is valued,
  • discourse and discussion of mathematical ideas are part of the teaching and learning process,
  • tools—including manipulatives, calculators, and computers—are used appropriately to support the understanding of mathematical ideas, and
  • communities of learners of mathematics are created.

Students K-12 develop skills in and conceptual understanding of:

  • numbers and operations,
  • data analysis and probability,
  • patterns and algebra,
  • geometry and spatial sense,
  • and measurement.
