The Math program at Ardsley Middle School aims to connect the Standards for Mathematical Practice to the Standards for Mathematical Content within the Common Core framework. Students are encouraged to use modeling strategies when problem solving which allows them to gain intellectual stamina and tools for success. The resulting understanding will allow them to be more flexible mathematicians and apply mathematics to practical situations. In addition, as the integration of technology increases, our program emphasizes the importance of estimation and reasonableness when justifying conclusions.
