## Math

Students will be expected to learn mathematical concepts by using manipulatives as well as a pen and paper; they will be working from simple ideas to complex ideas, from concrete to abstract ideas. At the end of the year the students should have developed a positive attitude, recognize the importance of math in everyday life, be able to develop solutions and solve mathematical problems.

There are 7 components to the mathematical processes: communication, connections, mental mathematics and estimation, problem solving, reasoning, technology and visualization. There are 4 strands in the Mathematics curriculum and there are sub-strands in each as follows:

There are 7 components to the mathematical processes: communication, connections, mental mathematics and estimation, problem solving, reasoning, technology and visualization. There are 4 strands in the Mathematics curriculum and there are sub-strands in each as follows:

·

__Numbers__– develop number sense·

__Patterns and Relations__– Use patterns to describe the world and to solve problems; represent algebraic expressions in multiple ways·

__Shape and Space__– use direct and indirect measurement to solve problems; describe the characteristics of 3-D objects and 2-D shapes and analyze the relationships among them; describe and analyze position and motion of objects and shapes.·

__Statistics and Probability__– Collect, display and analyze data to solve problems; use experimental or theoretical probabilities to represent and solve problems involving uncertainty.
