Harcourt Math is the district’s adopted mathematics text for grades K-5. Driven by California State Standards and the district framework, our curriculum is comprehensive and balanced.

We use an inquiry approach to problem solving and meaning making. Students develop the number sense needed to master basic computations, as well as a broad range of problem solving strategies needed to understand real-world math concepts such as:

  • data analysis
  • probability
  • geometry and spatial concepts
  • measurement
  • numeration and order
  • operations
  • patterns, functions, and sequences.

Algebra and uses of variables begin in the third grade. Mathematics is also integrated with other content areas and real-life situations. This enriched curriculum includes linking past experiences to new concepts, sharing ideas through accountable talk, cooperative learning activities, and developing concept readiness through hands-on activities and explorations.
