  • meet the SC READY grade level requirement.

"A classroom environment that encourages movement and communication allows students to share ideas and become independent thinkers." ~Dennis (2011)

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.

October Mathematical Process Standards (MPS) Focus

MPS 1: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.


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.
