Mathematically Connected Communities MC2
Mathematics is more than memorizing procedures and skill development. Mathematics learning is an interactive and social process where students make sense of mathematical ideas, apply those ideas to the world, and actively participate in knowledge construction. Eighty minutes of instructional time is devoted to mathematics daily. This time includes mathematics learning through whole class exploration/knowledge development and learning centers.
Students will participate in developmentally appropriate activities that support and challenge them to move to their next level of comprehension. Whole group exploration is a vital component of lesson presentations because it provides learning experiences that allow entry to a wide range of learning abilities.
