This year we are starting our new Math Program called Reveal Math. This was one of several math programs piloted by teachers last year. This program had the components we were looking for in a comprehensive math program. A goal of Reveal Math is to help students see math not just as a series of computations and procedures, but as a way of visualizing and communicating about their worlds and solving problems in the world. A second goal is to help students realize that being proficient doers of mathematics does not require speed with operations, but creativity, thoughtfulness, and flexibility.
Math homework will come home randomly during the week. It is for review and practice of the skills/strategies we have worked on in class. Some weeks there may not be any math homework. Math homework should be completed and returned by the next day or by the date written at the top of the actual homework.
