a) the advantages for children in having a
strong start b) the mutually reinforcing
benefits of conceptual understanding,
procedural fluency, and automatic recall of
facts and c) that efforts, not just inherent
talent, count in mathematical achievement.
Foundations for Success
Use should be made of what is clearly known from
rigorous research about how children learn,
especially by recognizing.

Math Goals
Please take a moment and write one or two math
goals you have for your child.
16
Goals of the Math Curriculum
We Expect Students To
• be able to make sense of mathematics and see
themselves as mathematical thinkers.
• be computationally fluent in all four operations
with whole numbers.
• explore number systems, measurement, geometry,
early algebra, and data, and make connections
among them.
• reason and communicate about their mathematical
ideas.

17
Goal 1 We expect students to be able to make
sense of mathematics and see themselves as
mathematical thinkers.
• Math

Make sense Use clues Make connections Wonder
Social Studies
Science
18
Goal 1 Generalizing Arithmetic
• Algebra work is about developing ideas and
concepts rather than manipulating symbols.

1 1 248 172 420
If you subtract an amount from one of the addends
and add it to the other, the sum will remain the
same.

Goal 1 Misunderstanding the Algorithm
• Examples

Subtraction Algorithm 65 - 131

Goal 1 Misunderstanding the Algorithm
• Examples

Multiplication 4 56 x
7 202
21
Goal 1 Misunderstanding the Algorithm
• Examples

22
Goal 1 Understanding Math
• One of the frailest of human faculties is the
ability to remember isolated bits of information
such as rules accepted on faith without
understanding. The child who is made dependent
on his ability to memorize is painfully
vulnerable. When he forgets, he is helpless
when he thinks he remembers he is never sure.
• Robert Wirtz

23
Goal 2 We expect students to be
computationally fluent in all four operations
with whole numbers.
• What is computational fluency?

24
Goal 2 Understanding Base-10 Place Value
• 42 x 18 420, 800, 840
• Is it more or less than 800?
• How do you know?

Accuracy
• Is it more or less than 8?
• How do you know?

53
Goal 4 Communicating in the Classroom
Write and solve a story problem about a combining
anything you can see out your window at home.
I see 28 birds eating seeds. 13 sqarls joyn in
how many birds and sqarls are there in all? I
know if I brake the 28 into 20 and 8 and 13 into
10 and 3 and add 20 10 30 8 3 11 and
then 30 11 41
54
Goal 4 Communicating in the Classroom
Marcies dad brings in cupcakes for a birthday
party. There are 16 chocolate cupcakes and 21
vanilla cupcakes. How many cupcakes did Marcies
dad bring in? Explain how you figured out using
numbers, words, or pictures.
Well I knew that the one in sixteen is really a
ten. And the two in the twenty-one is a twenty.
If I add those together they make thirty. Then I
add the other two numbers and I get 37!
55
Goal 4 Communicating in the Classroom
from Power Polygons. Circle the 4 angles in this
quadrilateral. Use the polygon pieces to find
the size of each angle. Label the size of each
angle and explain how you know.
56
Goal 4 Communicating Mathematically at Home
• Does this remind you of other problems?
• What have you come up with so far?
• Where do you think you should start?
• What is the problem asking you to do?
• Would drawing a picture or diagram help?
• How can I help? (w/o giving the solution)

Beyond State College Former Parents
Perspectives
Many thanks to you and SCASD for being on the
cutting edge in math instruction- I am seeing
firsthand its benefits. Casey's math
background in Investigations has put him in the
top of the pack in math--and his conceptual
understanding is better than his sisters (who
did not have Investigations).
