RVUSD FOCUS IN MATHEMATICS
Our Mathematics focus is to implement a balanced instructional program that provides ALL students with the opportunities, experiences and resources to be successful. The expectation is that ALL students will become proficient in basic computational and procedural skills, develop conceptual understanding, and become adept problem solvers. These goals are supported strategically through four program components:
The use of grade specific, rigorous instructional units from Eureka Math.
The use of teacher experts, consulting teachers, and district leadership to guide professional development.
The use and analysis of formative periodic assessments.
The use of assessment data to focus and implement immediate intervention where students most need help.
COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS FOR MATHEMATICS
The California Common Core State Standards for Mathematics are based on three major principles: focus, coherence, and rigor. There are two types of standards—the Standards for Mathematical Practice and Standards for Mathematical Content—that together define the mathematics students need to understand, know, and be able to do at each grade level.
COMMON CORE MATHEMATICS OVERVIEW BY GRADE LEVEL
Common Core standards set an expectation of understanding for every grade level and they prepare students for higher mathematics. Each overview below provides information on the big topics taught in Kindergarten through grade 8.
