Walk to Math Program Model
The concept behind Walk to Math is students receiving math instruction at their individual level. We all know that students learn in different ways and at their own individual pace. Mathematics is unique in that math lessons often build on previous math skills and concepts. If students have not mastered the previous skills and concepts, they are often confused and have difficulty mastering the new. Our goal for this program is to master all of their grade level math skills before they enter the next grade level.

Each month, or unit, teachers will focus on teaching several math standards. After a teacher finishes the unit, the students will be given assessments to check student understanding. In addition to unit tests, teachers administer standard based “check-points" (usually 3 problems) to ensure student mastery on previously taught standards. These “check-points” help teachers ensure that students have mastered all previously taught standards.

Common Core Domains (K - 2nd Grade)    (K only) Counting and Cardinal Numbers Numbers and Operations in Base Ten Operations and Algebraic Thinking Measurement and Data Geometry (3rd - 5th Grade)     Numbers and Operations in Base Ten Number and Operations – Fractions Operations and Algebraic Thinking Measurement and Data Geometry

Habits of a Mathematically Expert Student
The Common Core proposes a set of Mathematical Practices that all teachers should develop in their students: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them Reason abstractly and quantitatively Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others Model with mathematics Use appropriate tools strategically Attend to precision Look for and make use of structure Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

A Balanced Math Program
A well-balanced mathematics program includes: • Conceptual understanding • Procedural proficiency • Mathematical processes
