8 Math Mrs. Furman teaches math using the AMSTI program adopted by OMIS last year. It is designed to support students in making sense of mathematics and becoming mathematical thinkers. The investigations give students time to develop a strong conceptual foundation before moving into the more abstract algorithms.

10 “The Common Core State Standards were developed through an unprecedented state-led initiative that drew on the expertise of teachers, parents, administrators, researchers and content experts from across the country. The Standards define a staircase to college and career readiness, building on the best of previous state standards and evidence from international comparisons and domestic reports and recommendations. Most states have now adopted the Standards to replace previous expectations in English language arts/literacy and mathematics.” By David Coleman, Susan Pimentel, and Jason Zimba CCSS in ELA/Literacy
