The goal of the Live Oak Mathematics curriculum is for students to approach mathematical problems with confidence, curiosity, and the ability to apply problem-solving strategies with speed and success. Teachers incorporate real world investigations that build understanding of mathematical concepts and their applications in meaningful contexts. Students are exposed to a variety of strategies and algorithms for solving problems and are expected to be able to articulate how they arrive at an answer. Across all grades, students build skills and understanding in mathematical strands including numeration, computation and operations, measurement, geometry, data collection, patterns, and functions. The program utilizes discussion, daily routines, yearlong projects, independent, partner and small-group activities, games, manipulatives, and home-school partnerships.
