Math at Mt. Desert Elementary School

(not the Abbott and Costello version:)

This isn't the math I did in school!

We've heard that comment (or made it ourselves) so often in an earnest effort to help our children with homework. The goal of this website is to bridge the gap between math instruction as we once knew it and the math instruction that our children are receiving. So look around, enjoy learning, talk to your kids, and share your questions with the teachers.

Our textbooks:
