Do The Math is a program that students develop the skills they need to compute with accuracy and efficiency, the number sense they need to reason, and the ability to apply their skills and reasoning to solve problems.

*Do The Math rebuilds critical mathematical foundations for understanding and develops understanding of key concepts and skills with whole numbers and fractions—the essentials necessary for students to succeed in algebra and higher-level mathematics.

*Do The Math Provides lessons that balance developing understanding and learning procedures.

*Do The Math Strengthens students’ ability to make sense of concepts, solve problems, reason, and use appropriate tools.



What is the Common Core?
The Common Core is a series of national standards designed to make sure students are better prepared for employment and college. Forty-five states and three territories have adopted the Common Core standards.  In adopting the Common Core Standards, New York State became eligible for Race to the Top grants provided by the federal government.
How does the Common Core impact our students?
Currently, the Common Core will most impact eighth and ninth grade students in their ELA and mathematics classrooms. The curriculum and assessments in these areas are designed to reflect the new standards. The standards ask students to master new material in a different way. Because the standards are more rigorous in some ways, it may impact student grades.
What are the major shifts in mathematics?
  • Focus - learn more about fewer, key topics
  • Build skills within and across grades
  • Develop speed and accuracy
  • Really know it, really do it
  • Use it in the real world
  • Think fast AND solve problems
