Brighton Area Schools uses Everyday Mathematics to support the instruction of our standards. Your child's math instruction will focus on problem solving, geometry, algebra preparation, data collection, measurement, probability and statistics. The program’s foundation rests upon the belief that students learn best by doing. An emphasis is placed on problem solving and activities that promote higher thinking skills. Instead of traditional units of study, topics will be repeated throughout the year in a variety of ways. My goal is to provide all children with quality math instruction that makes the study of mathematics an engaging successful experience.
Everyday Mathematics is a comprehensive Pre-K through 6th grade mathematics curriculum developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project and published by McGraw-Hill Education. It is currently being used by about 4.3 million students in over 220,000 classrooms. The curriculum provides opportunities for hands on/minds on learning that encourages students to share and verbalize their thinking with teachers and peers.
