Triton Regional School District Adopts New Mathematics Program for Grades K-8

Salisbury Elementary is excited to announce the implementation of Math in Focus as the new mathematics curriculum. Based on the successful Singapore Math approach, Math in Focus draws on best practices from around the world and highlights problem-solving as the key focus of mathematical learning. Your children will undoubtedly come home and share new math vocabulary and problem-solving strategies. The learning progression at every level includes;

Concrete (hands-on) → Pictorial (visualizing ) →  Abstract (numbers and symbols)

A key differentiator of this program is its focus on attitudes and metacognition. In order for students and teachers to excel, they must develop positive attitudes about math, have the confidence to persevere, and have the ability to monitor their own thinking. This sets the stage for high achievement for all!

Along with new learning comes occasional frustration. Please encourage your children’s math thinking with a positive message, especially if math was never your favorite subject. We consider all of our students mathematicians!
