“Empowering Leaders, Learners, & Problem-Solvers”
Colonial School District employs a comprehensive and coherent mathematics curriculum that includes the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM), a core curriculum resource within each grade band, Math Instructional Routines, online resources to personalize learning, and several math intervention resources.
Inquiry-Based Mathematics where students actively explore mathematical ideas to develop understanding and fluency. They collaborate, investigate, and take part in problem-based learning.
Inquiry-Based Instruction That Connects Mathematical Ideas Connected Mathematics 3, or CMP3, is an inquiry-based mathematics program for Grades 6-8. It helps students actively focus on math problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, representation, and connections. These math practices require students to look deeper and connect problem-solving to practical situations. Funded in part by the National Science Foundation, and developed through Michigan State University, CMP3 provides a powerful inquiry model for learning mathematics. Connect mathematical ideas to students’ everyday world.
“Our vision is to provide and support student engagement in rigors tasks and curriculum that are coherent and balanced. We desire to have students engage in deeper learning and benefit from gaining a strong conceptual foundation as well as procedural fluency in mathematics. With an ever-increasing need for students to communicate, collaborate, think critically and creatively we desire to provide materials that are accessible to each and every student and at the same time are robust in that they provide students with the opportunity to work at a high cognitive level.”
At the high school level, Colonial School District utilizes the Mathematics vision Project curriculum with instructional routines to support student learning towards procedural fluency based on conceptual understanding. Mathematics visions project is an integrated curriculum aligned to Common Core State standards for mathematics. Mathematics Vision Project incorporates algebra, functions, geometry, trigonometry, statistics and probability. Mathematics Vision Project was created with a vision to provide and support student engagement in rigorous tasks through which students are encouraged to communicate, collaborate, think critically and creatively while participating productive discussions and problem solving.

“ST Math starts by teaching the foundational concepts visually, then connects the ideas to the symbols and language. With visual learning, students are better equipped to tackle unfamiliar math problems, recognize patterns, and build conceptual understanding. Without language barriers, the problem is accessible to all students, regardless of skill level or language background.” (ST Math website)
We utilize ST Math in grades K-8 to strengthen students’ math understanding through problem-solving.
Students will make the most progress by playing ST Math for at least 90 min per week.
“ Imagine Math is a research-based math intervention system designed to support students who are struggling with mathematics. The program transitions students to the rigor of the Common Core State Standards and prepares them for Algebra and beyond.” (Imagine Math Website)
We utilize Imagine Math in grades 9-12 to deepen understanding of essential math concepts. This program meets students where they are in their learning and supports them in meeting their individual math learning needs with a personalized learning experience. Imagine Math uses benchmark data to customize lessons for students based on their learning needs.
Students will make the most progress by playing Imagine Math for at least 60 min and completing at least 2 lessons per week. All student are encouraged to use Imagine Math both at school and home.
