We believe that in order to master mathematics, students need to build on prior learning—what new concepts they can learn depends on which concepts they already know. We chose Saxon Math™ to be the backbone of our curriculum, as it provides a learning structure proven to advance students steadily and assuredly to higher levels of understanding.
In addition to the Saxon Math, we will inspire math success through growth mindsets and innovative teaching, which is based on the latest research on math learning - all students can learn mathematics to high levels. Instruction that is based upon this principle dramatically increases students’ mathematics achievement.
Visual mathematics is an important part of mathematics that helps students see mathematical ideas and increase their understanding of numerical mathematics. It also facilitates higher-level thinking, enables communication, and helps people see the creativity in mathematics. When precise thinking of mathematics is combined with creativity, openness, visualization, and flexibility, the mathematics comes alive. We aim to create mathematical excitement by asking students for the different ways they see and can solve the problems and by encouraging discussions rather than solving standard algorithm problems from rote memory.
