Rooted in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, this curriculum emphasizes the importance of:
•deep thinking
•conceptual understanding
•fluency
•communication

Math is not viewed as an isolated set of procedures to be memorized; rather, it is a process of engaging learners in rich mathematical investigations that help them make connections within mathematics and with the real world. V-Math coordinates researched-based math tasks, linking topics and thinking both within and across grade levels.

Parents can also visit here to see Parent Roadmaps of the math curriculum. The Council of the Great City Schools has developed content and grade-specific parent roadmaps that provide detailed information for parents about the expectations of the Common Core in Mathematics. These roadmaps include examples of grade-level focus in the content area using parent-friendly language, sample progressions of learning across three grade levels in the Common Core, and tips to parents on communicating with teachers about their child’s work and how to support student learning at home.
