The field of mathematics continues to grow at a rapid rate, spreading into new fields, and creating new technologies and jobs. Students today require an education in mathematics that goes far beyond what was needed in the past in order to maximize their opportunities. The way we taught students in the past simply does not prepare them for the higher demands of college and careers today and in the future.
Marysville schools, and schools throughout the country, are working to improve teaching and learning to ensure that all children will graduate high school prepared for further education, technology, economic change, and social realities.
In mathematics, this means three major changes.
FOCUS: Teachers will concentrate on teaching a more focused set of major math concepts and skills.
COHERENCE: Students will be allowed time to master key math concepts and skills in a more organized way throughout the year and from one grade to the next.
RIGOR: Teachers will use rich and challenging math content to engage students in solving real-world problems in order to inspire a greater interest in mathematics.
