AN EFFECTIVE MATHEMATICS PROGRAM follows a balanced framework which includes conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and problem solving. Students need to learn math in a logical and sequential manner, with continual connections being made between past mathematical understanding and new concepts; connections between concrete experiences, pictorial representations, symbols, and algorithms.

​GSSD believes that:

  • All children can do math with respect to their personal experiences and needs; 
  • Engaging and culturally appropriate resources aid instruction;  
  • Providing all students with the foundations of Number Sense (compare, compose and decompose, represent, visualize, and estimate) lays the foundation for a deep understanding of relationships between and within numbers across all grade levels.  

​GSSD Math Goal

  • By June 30, 2021, there will be 2% more Grades 2, 5, & 8 students at or above grade level in math compared to the June 2019 data.
