Math in Focus downloads are located below and should answer many questions asked by parents.  Math in Focus is a rigorous math curriculum that requires students to not only find the correct answer but to perform a higher-level function with their answer to receive credit for a correct response.

Mountain View School has a school-wide focus on Math Facts.  On Thursdays (see Students tab..."Minute Math Calendar") students are tested on Math Facts in a time-sensitive format developed by MV staff. The schedule of tested material is not a secret-- the students need to master the facts...for their lifetime.  Part of the Math Facts process is each student's  dedication to a task and completion of it. This skill is one that will be used in many of life's challenges.

You can work with your child to help them master the facts--to  develop what we call "automaticity"...they shouldn't count or calculate-they need know their facts "By Heart".  These base skills allow students to estimate answers and double check their calculators when the "answer" that pops up jsut can't be right...or their battery powering their hand held device--stops.

The "Student Recognition" and "Minute Math" buttons under the Students tab explains details.
