High quality mathematics curriculum and instruction engages hands, minds and intellect through authentic, active learning that supports each student to achieve personal success. These learning experiences, assessed through a variety of methods, bridge the concrete and abstract by applying critical thinking skills and problem solving strategies in meaningful and relevant situations. Through the understanding of mathematical concepts and reasoning, every student will be prepared to communicate effectively using the language of mathematics as a tool to meet future challenges.
In an effort to provide parents a report card which gives specific information concerning what a child should know, understand and be able to do, the elementary report card is linked to state standards (TEKS). As we collectively and strategically plan to integrate 21st-century learning standards, it is imperative that effective methods be used to measure and report what students are learning. The standards-based report card is a tool to help accomplish these goals.
