Mathematics in Hopkins
In Hopkins, we strive to cultivate critical thinkers who are empathetic, confident, curious, and empowered in math. Last year, Hopkins launched an E-12+ Math Committee with representatives from all schools. The goals of this committee are to: align math teaching with best practices, deepen and strengthen personalization in mathematics, and develop math teacher leaders across our system. We want students to have a positive association with mathematics as a result of their experiences in our schools!
