connecting the patterns around us

Mathematics is a means of investigation, a way of solving problems, and a way of thinking. It is connected to everything. Math should be fun and engaging! The mathematics world is one of inquiry, exploration, discovery, and application. When we extend math beyond learning the facts and challenge children to be problem solvers, they remain curious and eager learners. Manipulatives and activities provide the means for exploring concepts and ideas. All students are able to learn to apply mathematics. A strong foundation in the fundamentals of math gives students a springboard to explorations in many different fields of interest.
