Elementary Mathematics

  • To learn and practice skills in mathematics and numeracy, Clippers use i-Ready Classroom Mathematics (simply called i-Ready), a connected learning system for assessment, instruction, and support. 

    Students are assessed three times a year using the iReady Math Diagnostic, which provides comprehensive insight into student learning and growth to help teachers meet the needs of all students. Students will use the “Try-Discuss-Connect” routine framework, which deepens conceptual understanding and promotes collaborative problem solving, helping to build students' math confidence.

    In addition to daily direct teacher instruction, a key component is the personalized learning platform called My Path

    Our mathematics program is designed to help all children be successful with rigorous, grade-level content by using flexible, equitable, and accessible instruction.


    Learning includes: 

    • Use numbers to count and group objects, compare how many objects are in different groups, and add and subtract

    • Use language to describe, sort, name, and compare two-dimensional and three dimensional shapes

    Grade 1

    Learning includes: 

    • Understand how counting, adding, and subtraction are related

    • Understand that two-digit numbers are made of tens and ones

    • Understand how to measure the length of objects

    • Put shapes together and break them apart to create new shapes

    Grade 2

    Learning includes: 

    • Understand place value in numbers up to 1,000

    • Use various methods to add and subtract numbers up to 1,000

    • Understand and use standard units and tools of measurement

    • Recognize and draw shapes with specific characteristics

    Grade 3

    Students in Grade 3 also use Fluency Flight to practice fact fluency. 

    Learning includes:

    • Understand multiplication and division and how they are related

    • Understand fractions and how they represent real-world situations

    • Understand connections between multiplication and the areas of shapes

    • Describe, analyze, and compare shapes like rectangles and squares

    Grade 4

    Students in Grade 4 also use Fluency Flight to practice fact fluency. 

    Learning includes: 

    • Solve multi-step word problems using multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction

    • Understand that multiplication and division can be used to compare quantities

    • Understand and use equivalent fractions (like 1/2 and 3/6, which are the same) and unit fractions (like 1/3 or 1/5, with a 1 on top)

    • Describe, analyze, compare, and classify shapes using types of lines and angles


    The Teaching & Learning of mathematics in the elementary grades is supported by our Elementary Math Instructional Coaches.
