Mathematics


The mathematics program at Madonna empowers students to become mathematically literate individuals.    A mathematically literate person can estimate; interpret data; solve day-to-day problems; reason in numerical, graphical, and geometric situations; and communicate using mathematics (Leading Math Success, 2004, p. 10).  Students at Madonna learn mathematics by problem solving in real-life contexts through the mathematical processes of problem solving, reasoning and proving, reflecting, selecting tools and computational strategies, connecting, representing, and communicating.  Students have the opportunity to engage in investigations and rich tasks in order to further their understanding and make connections between the concepts they are learning.  Learning tools and technology are used in the classrooms to support students to strengthen and develop their conceptual and abstract understanding of mathematics.
