In June of 2010, twenty-five teachers met to rewrite the math curriculum of Lexington Public Schools to reflect the new state math standards and to tie our key concepts to the new standards. First, teachers looked at the district's previous goals and strands of math and decided if they were still relevant.
The teachers decided upon the following goals for math:
Lexington Public Schools Math Program Goals
Develop fluency with basic computational skills
2. Solving mathematical problems involving geometry and measurement
3. Communicate precisely about quantities, logical relationships and unknowns, via the use of signs, symbols, models, graphs, and mathematical terms
4. Gather data, analyze evidence and build arguments using mathematical reasoning to support or refute hypotheses; and make connections among mathematical ideas and between mathematics and other content area
5. Develop mathematical problems solvers who can find ways to reach a solution or goal where no routine path is apparent
6. Connect mathematical skills to real life situations
The group felt the new program goals more accurately represented the requirement of the new math standards as well as the processes of math learning. The newly identified math processes are multiple representations, problem solving, connections, reasoning, and communication.
