ECC Math Curriculum and Goals

 SECC's Math Mission and Vision Statement:  "The Kentucky Academic Standards are aligned to early numeracy trajectories for learning mathematics. Our school’s mathematical vision is to use developmentally appropriate tasks, instructional strategies and assessments that focus on conceptual understanding. The shared teaching vision at our school includes teachers engaging students in high-cognitive-demand tasks to promote problem solving while connecting concrete models to real world application of mathematics. Teachers will use purposeful questioning to help assess and advance students’ understanding based on the learning progression for mathematics. The role of the teacher is to facilitate exploration and guide understanding of concepts through various instructional settings using high-quality instructional resources (whole group and guided small group instruction)."

 

Our primary math curriculum is Everyday Mathematics.  

The mathematics goals at SECC are to enable our students to:

· Solve mental math

· Understand how and why mathematics works

  • Have some understanding if answers are reasonable

· Solve problems with AND without technology

· Begin building a solid mathematics foundation to prepare them for the workforce

· Have the strategies to be flexible at problem solving

· Enjoy mathematics!


Additional links and resources for Familes:

The KAS Family Guides (available in English and Spanish) have been developed to help families familiarize themselves with the content of each grade level’s standards. Each guide contains a standards overview for Reading & Writing, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies, along with sections devoted to Examples of Your Child’s Work at School, How to Help Your Child at Home, Questions You Can Ask Your Child and Questions You Can Ask Your Child’s Teacher for each of the content areas. Written for families, educators might consider sharing this resource prior to family engagement events to equip families as partners in offering to help students move learning forward.

This guide was made to help families understand how assessment can support student learning. You will find information about different types of assessment your student might engage in and how each can help your student meet learning goals. This guide includes questions that you can ask your student and their teacher to help you support learning at home. When teachers and families work together, students can develop the skills they will need for life after graduation. Written for families, educators might consider sharing this resource prior to family engagement events to equip families as partners in offering to help students move learning forward.

The Kentucky Family Math Night Resources have been developed through a partnership among the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE), Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Appalachia, the Kentucky Center for Mathematics (KCM) and the Kentucky Collaborative for Families and Schools. The resource includes guidance on talking to families about mathematics and includes activities designed to engage a community in learning mathematics.

The Kentucky Family Math Games webpage is a collection of simple, yet engaging games families can play over and over again at home to build mathematical thinking. To help families know which games may be more appropriate for their aged child, they are organized by grade level bands.
