District Overview

Number Sense: Numbers and what we do with them help us make sense of our world. Knowing how to use numbers can help us solve problems.
Measurement: Measurement gives us a way to answer "how many - how much - how far?" Knowing how to use measuring instruments helps us gain accurate information.
Algebra: Algebra uses patterns and how patterns work to find solutions to everyday problems.
Geometry: Geometry provides opportunities for problem solving using reasoning. Points, lines, planes, and space are used to understand the dimensions of our world.
Data Analysis: Understanding and interpreting data grows more important each day. Probability, organization, variables, and patterns help us judge the reasonableness of our solutions.

Grades K-3 Overview

  • Addition, subtraction, multiplication through 12 x 12, introduction to division.
  • Measurement and comparison of length, liquid, and weight. Telling time. Counting money and making change.
  • Find the missing number in addition/subtraction problems.
  • Identify shapes.
  • Find perimeter, area, and volume. Lines. Rays.
  • Read, make, and compare bar graphs, line graphs, pictographs, and pie charts.

Grades 4-5 Overview

  • Solve one and two-step problems. Use fractions, whole numbers and decimals.
  • Calculate length, perimeter, area and conversions within the metric system.
  • Understand operations and number properties. ex: commutative, associative, distributive, and zero. Solve linear equations.
  • Compare geometric figures and determine their properties and describe geometric relationships.
  • Determine mean, median, and mode from set of data. Calculate the probability of events.

Grades 6-8 Overview

  • Identify and apply number sense to a variety of problems.
  • Use concrete/graphic models and appropriate formulas to apply the concepts of measurement.
  • Apply properties of numbers and operations to solve problems.
  • Develop and communicate logical arguments about geometric figures and patterns.
  • Organize data, make sense of variables and interpret patterns.

Grades 9-12 Overview

  • Identify and apply the properties of all numbers.
  • Measure and compare quantities using appropriate units. Apply formulas for real-world measurements.
  • Interpret relationships using tables, graphs, and charts. Solve problems using number properties. Use concepts and procedures to solve problems.
  • Identify, describe, and compare relationships of lines, planes, and other shapes. Use proofs to solve problems.
  • Organize, describe, and make predictions from data. Apply and describe things using the probability of the event.
