This year, the district adopted our new math curriculum.  We will be using CPM.  There are three pillars in CPM. 
    1) Cooperative Learning 2) Problem based learning 3) Mixed space learning. 
    Over the course of the year, we will be studying representations of numbers, arithmetic strategies, area, portions, integers, variables, ratios, fractions, algebraic expressions, rates, statistics, volume and percents. Students will engage in meaningful math conversations daily to enhance their mathematical thinking.  Students will also work cooperatively in daily lessons, projects, group quizzes, and assignments.  
    We are pumped about this new program and excited to jump in and get started.
