2016 - 2017 Goals

Every student will...

  • grow and meet their NWEA/MAP goal.
  • meet the SC READY grade level requirement.

"By inviting young children to solve problems in their own ways, we are initiating them into the community of mathematicians who engage in structuring and modeling their "lived worlds" mathematically." ~Fosnot & Jacob

Math Coach's Schedule

A google calendar has been shared with you for the purpose of scheduling additional planning time, team teaching times, math workshop times, model lessons and/or classroom observations (not for evaluation purposes). Please feel free to utilize me as an additional resource as you see fit.

September Mathematical Process Standards (MPS) Focus

A mathematically proficient student should be able to:


  • Relate a problem to prior knowledge.
  • Recognize there may be multiple entry points to a problem and more than one path to a solution.
  • Analyze what is given, what is not given, what is being asked, and what strategies are needed, and make an initial attempt to solve a problem.
  • Evaluate the success of an approach to solve a problem and refine it if necessary.


We will discuss how this should look in your classrooms and the types of activities that can be implemented to support this standard during our planning sessions.
