EASD’s elementary mathematics philosophy is that through
instruction, differentiation and the use of manipulatives all students can be
successful in mathematics and reach their maximum potential.The curriculum focuses on the 11 strands of standards that
describe what students should know and be able to do by the time they exit
elementary school, middle school and high school.Students who demonstrate proficiency of these standards will
be able to communicate mathematically and be able to use their knowledge to organize
and understand information in other subjects.
