As part of our math instruction our school will use the GoMath Program in all grades. This program is aligned with the Common Core Learning Standards. Math instruction is delivered to our students through the “Workshop Model”. All lessons that are taught are visual, hands-on and differentiated in order to meet the needs of every child. Students are given the opportunity to work individually and collaboratively, with partners, and in small groups. Students are assessed informally on a daily basis. Students that are struggling with the lesson objective receive small group support from the teacher. Students who master the lesson objective receive enrichment tasks in order to push their thinking. Additionally, formal exams are administered at the end of each unit so that teachers can plan future lessons and create small groups based on needs.
Real world connections and problem solving opportunities are planned in all lessons in order to enrich the GoMath Program.
