Learning mathematics involves a variety of skills, processes, and understandings. We strive to educate students who not only have the understanding of mathematical concepts and procedural fluency with mathematical skills but who can model mathematical situations appropriately and construct their own learning through carefully planned classroom experiences.
We support student-centered classrooms that use a balanced approach to teaching mathematics, emphasizing both conceptual understanding and procedural fluency, which leads to increased mathematical proficiency for all students. This is accomplished through a guaranteed and viable mathematics curriculum in all Fayette County Public Schools, from early childhood through high school graduation.
The curriculum unit frameworks, pacing guides, and FCPS Math Framework guidelines provided in the Navigator are the instructional components and structures identified in research as the most effective. However, the specific grouping, scheduling, resources, and instructional models should vary to meet the needs of the students in each individual school.
