K-12 Math Curriculum

In preparing students for 21st Century jobs, SFPS is focused on students learning to use higher order thinking skills, implementing the common core instructional shifts and standards of mathematical practice to gain a deeper understanding and application of what is being taught. As part of this initiative teachers are implementing notebooks/journals for students to solve real-world problems and to reflect on their thinking.  In collaboration with Carnegie Learning, an innovative, research based company founded by cognitive and computer scientists from Carnegie Mellon University and practicing mathematics teachers, SFPS is providing professional development, coaching opportunities and curriculum alignment.
