(This site can be found with the direct link or from the school webpage [Academic -> Curriculum]. Thanks Jen!) Points from our elevator speeches: - quantitative literacy
- habits of mind
- logical arguements
- evaluating risks
- meeting the demands of life
- ability to use mathematics to meet general demands
- use math every day, use in different situations, reinforce; connections
- logical reasoning, meaning of numbers, real world problems,
- identify, apply and use what I know to meet general demands
Numeracy is: - using logic (if...then...)
- real life
- applying problem solving skills
- not just math computation
- the collection and use of data
- in daily use- we need to highlight where it happens
