Mrs McLeodx27s Math Resource
As the world grows infinitely more technological, mathematics is becoming all the more essential to students' later success in life. Early experiences in mathematics are critical to students' attitude towards math as well as their confidence in their ability to understand math. Recognizing that these facts are paramount in the elementary years, students attending Yorktown Elementary discover the excitement of math through discovery lessons, cooperative activities, critical thinking, and games during a regularly scheduled math resource time each week. Throughout the course of the school year, students explore all areas of mathematics: numbers, measurement, geometry, probability, statistics, and patterns, functions and algebra. Hands-on experiences that engage students' minds help create and enhance their understanding and appreciation of mathematics.
