Math Changes!

Much has changed in the way we view and teach mathematics.  2+2 still equals 4, but there are many ways for students to think about these numbers and express their means of attaining answers.  The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) place new demands for deep thought and problem solving within the field of mathematics.  Check out this video that gives you details about why the changes have occurred.

 

At VES, we are piloting three new series to determine the best text to use with our students next year.  You will see two Houghton-Mifflin books (Math Expressions and Go Math) and Harcourt-Brace (My Math).  A pioneer in CCSS, Eureka Math, is being used as a "base program" for all students.
