Mathematics – Everyday Math

Everyday Mathematics recognizes and builds on children’s capabilities by expanding the range of their math experiences and ideas. The program highlights are:


  • Problem solving for everyday situations--This method allows children to see math used in everyday situations and provides problem solving opportunities.


  • Developing readiness through hands-on activities--The program offers many suggestions for explorations and projects for children to work on together.


  • Establishing links between past experiences and explorations of new concepts—Using manipulatives or pictures, ideas are practiced daily using words and symbols.


  • Sharing ideas through discussion—When children work together, they can build on one another’s discoveries, one idea leads to another or affirms their own conclusions. Discussion promotes good listening habits. Talking about math is an important part of understanding math; verbalization leads to clarification and understanding of the concepts.


  • Cooperative learning through partner and small group activities—Children discover that working together is more enjoyable and stimulating than working in isolation.


  • Ongoing review throughout the year—People rarely learn something new the first time they experience it. For this reason, repeated exposure to key ideas, usually in slightly different contexts, are built into the program.
