ES Math

At SCCS we utilize Eureka Math

Eureka Math is a Common Core aligned curriculum which is a holistic Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 curriculum that carefully sequences mathematical progressions in expertly crafted modules that are designed with the aim of developing conceptual understanding and building number sense.

We are committed to applying Effective Mathematics Teaching Practices in our classrooms,  that research indicates need to be consistent components of every mathematics lesson. They are as follows:

  • Establish mathematics goals to focus learning
  • Implement tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving
  • Use and connect mathematical representations
  • Facilitate meaningful mathematical discourse
  • Pose purposeful questions
  • Build procedural fluency from conceptual understanding
  • Support productive struggle in learning mathematics
  • Elicit and use evidence of student thinking

We at SCCS make strides to connect math with literature, art, and other content areas as well as embed daily mathematical practices with real world applications.

We are constantly looking for opportunities to celebrate and get students excited about the study of mathematics. For example, we celebrate and host International Math Story-Telling Day, Pythagorean Theorem Day, Fibonacci Day, Palindrome Day, Pi Day and many more!
