Our comprehensive mathematics program combines the essential elements of computation, concepts, and application. Math concepts are integrated across the curriculum and included in music, art, and Spanish lessons. The curriculum framework is based on both the Florida Sunshine State Standards and the Pinellas County K-5 Student Expectations. These include:
- Number Sense, Concepts, and Operations
- Geometry and Spatial Sense
- Algebraic Thinking
- Data Analysis and Probability
- Real World Problem Solving Skills
- Mathematics-Technology Connection
Some Features of Our Program:
Our teaching best practices in mathematics include both computational and conceptual skills building. Manipulatives and problem solving activities are always a part of building a strong foundation in number sense and operations. Students are encouraged to explore their mathematical world through use of existing technology including calculators, programs on our network, and the Internet. Our goal is to empower students to meet the complex challenges of today's world by making them sound mathematical thinkers and problem solvers.
- Student math activities include:
- Math Superstars, sponsored by our PTA
- Math Mania competition.
