Math

St. Philomena School uses the Common Core Standards for math and its basis for its math program.

The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that

mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students.

These practices rest on important “processes and proficiencies” with longstanding

importance in mathematics education. The first of these are the NCTM process

standards of problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, representation,

and connections. The second are the strands of mathematical proficiency specified

in the National Research Council’s report Adding It Up: adaptive reasoning, strategic

competence, conceptual understanding (comprehension of mathematical concepts,

operations and relations), procedural fluency (skill in carrying out procedures

flexibly, accurately, efficiently and appropriately), and productive disposition

(habitual inclination to see mathematics as sensible, useful, and worthwhile, coupled

with a belief in diligence and one’s own efficacy).
