Monmouth County Private School – Connected Math
Our Outdoor School connected math curriculum is built upon standards that define life readiness. The curriculum is designed to be rigorous, innovative, and to challenge students to think critically and to effectively to solve problems. Our curriculum is designed by our own teachers anchored with Connected Mathematics. The goal is to build upon the strong foundational skills students learn in elementary grades.
This program is grounded in concepts that include the number systems, expressions and equations, geometry, statistics and probability and functions. As students develop an in-depth understanding of these concepts they become confident learners and are fully prepared for a rigorous high school math curriculum.
Students are immersed in modeling, reasoning, and the application of mathematics. They solve challenging problems and share their solutions using graphs, equations and expressions, tables, and words. They are engaged in conversation with peers to enhance vocabulary, work through problem solving, and apply what they learned to new problems and real world situations. Our math teachers are constantly asking questions and observing student understandings and misconceptions. Teacher/researchers use this information to meet the needs of every learner.
The students will:
- Develop mathematical knowledge, understanding, and skill
- Develop the capacity to define and solve problems with reason, insight, inventiveness, and technical proficiency
- Build on and make connections among mathematical ideas and concepts
- See the connections between mathematics and other disciplines
