Description: The Math for Understanding course is offered to all students by recommendation only based on individual student data. This course will focus on the common core standards and necessary skills in order to be successful rather than problem solving, and literacy abilities needed to solve the problems. At the beginning of the year, students will be given an assessment to find out what standards and skills from previous grade levels, they are not proficient in. Students will work on those standards and skills first before moving onto the current grade levels’ standards and skills. Everything in this course will be standards based, focusing on learning the skills.
