    Mathematics Instruction

    The Stafford County Public Schools' Mathematics curriculum is designed to achieve a balance among concepts, skills, and problem solving. The curriculum stresses rigorous concept development, presents realistic and relevant tasks, while maintaining a strong emphasis on computational and procedural skills. Kindergarten through Advanced Mathematics, the curriculum encourages students to reason mathematically, to evaluate mathematical arguments both formally and informally, and to use the language of mathematics to communicate ideas and information precisely. Our teachers use the Virginia Standards of Learning for Mathematics to ensure students are able to make connections among mathematical topics and to other disciplines.

     

    Stafford County Public Schools strives to incorporate the 5 Mathematical Process Standards into our instruction everyday:

     

    Problem Solving - Apply and adapt a variety of appropriate strategies to solve problems

    Reasoning/Proof – Seeing and establishing relationships among ideas and facts

    Communication – Share mathematical thinking coherently and clearly to peers, teachers, and others

    Connection – Recognize and apply mathematics in contexts outside of mathematics

    Representation – Create and use representations to organize, record, and communicate mathematical ideas

    By implementing the Mathematics Process Standards, teachers are assisting students with developing skills to become an ALL Century Learner, C5W
