Math Support

The foundation of our early math work comes from the research-supported instructional practices called the Essential Instructional Practices in Early Mathematics. These Essentials seek to promote high-quality, equitable teaching and learning for children in the discipline of mathematics.  Research suggests that these eight practices have significant potential to positively affect children’s learning of mathematics. The long-term goal is that focusing on this work will prompt shifts in systems, learning, teaching, and assessment so that each and every child develops strong mathematical understanding, skills, dispositions and identities. Using the Mathematics Essentials will help build conceptual understanding among our learners.
