Students should be aware of the spiral nature of the mathematics curriculum in which
ideas are introduced early and extended through periodic reviews that consider them in
greater depth. The mathematics curriculum should: - refine and extend methods of mathematical problem solving
- include problem-solving approaches to investigate and understand mathematical content
- develop concepts through the interplay among the five representations: concrete, pictorial, verbal, symbolic, and contextual
- use mental math and estimation strategies on a daily basis
- apply the process of mathematical modeling to real-world situations
- continue to develop language and symbolism to communicate mathematical ideas
- include numerous and varied experiences that reinforce and extend logical reasoning
- test conjectures and express generalizations discovered through investigations
- investigate the connections and interplay among various mathematical topics and their applications
Students should be able to use appropriate technology as a tool in computation and a means of developing concepts or enhancing the teaching process. |
