Springs Curriculum

Middle School Math



In grades 7 and 8, Springs School implements the On-Core math series which is an innovative instructional solution that develops students' understanding of the Common Core State Standards in an interactive format while integrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice. The program emphasizes understanding through interactive lessons; research based instructional approaches, best practices and differentiated instructional resources to ensure success for all students. Problem-solving connections helps students pull together the mathematical concepts and skills taught in the units and apply them to real-world situations. Students are able to actively participate in every aspect of a lesson which promotes a deeper understanding of the mathematical concepts. Reflection on what is being learned is a major focus of the series. Students reflect on questions that challenge them  to think about the mathematics that they are studying and share their understanding with the class. The curriculum is supplemented with appropriate materials from a variety of sources including the Glencoe-Math series created for NYS .
