• Math Overview

    The Medford School District aligns its math curriculum with the state-adopted Common Core Standards. The Common Core State Standards are a set of shared K-12 learning expectations for students in English-language arts and mathematics intended to prepare students for college and career. Our goal is to connect every student to math strategies so they can become critical thinkers and efficient mathematicians.

    Mathematics provides a foundation for the learning of science and technology as well as for the interpretation of quantitative information in other subjects. It teaches how to reason logically and develops skills that students can carry into other disciplines and many situations in real life. Mathematics helps students understand how the world works while exposing them to some of its unanswered mysteries. Ensuring all students develop a solid foundation in mathematics is our challenge. 

    For questions about your child's work in math, please contact your school or the Office of Elementary Student Achievement.
