In Arlington Public Schools, we believe that high achievement and success for all our students may be achieved through the learning of mathematics with deep conceptual understanding. To help our students achieve these goals in mathematics, we use a math workshop model of instruction to provide opportunities for the development of problem-solving skills and student choice.
Looking for ways to support your child in math learning?
Research shows that children benefit from informal math conversations and other opportunities to play with math in a relaxed environment.
