DISTRICT HOME

The Beaverton School District includes 34 elementary schools, nine middle schools, six high schools, five option schools, 19 option programs and two charter schools. We have more than 39,000 students and nearly 4,500 staff members.

The Beaverton School Board has seven elected community members who serve four-year terms. They are volunteers. Though candidates are nominated from the Board Zone they live in, voters in the District elect them at-large. Each Board member has several school assignments that may or may not be in their zone.

The ability to think and communicate mathematically is essential to becoming a successful and productive member of our dynamic global society. To prepare our students, they must develop the skills to:

If we are to meet this challenge, we must provide students with multiple opportunities to engage with a variety of problem solving tasks that reflect the diverse backgrounds, abilities, and experiences of each student. Students should explore and collaborate on rich problems with multiple entry points and multiple paths to a solution that challenges them. Students should be encouraged to work through their thinking and computations in order for them to recognize the patterns, significance, and relevance of the true nature of mathematics. Developing number sense, estimation, and computation skills will create students who are more efficient in their problem solving skills.

We must provide all students with a rigorous, accessible, and challenging curriculum that will develop critical thinkers and prepare them for post‐secondary, career, and life success. This will require a combination of materials and the use of multiple instructional strategies, including evidence‐based intervention and extension methods to successfully reach all children. Proficiency on learning targets, mathematical practices, and ongoing assessment of student progress will inform next steps for instruction.

**Dreambox was chosen to complement our adoption of Math Workshop and the CFLM/Fosnot units. Dreambox is an adaptive online math program that teaches students in a way that conceptually matches the work teachers are doing in workshop. Students are assigned work that best meets what they need that helps to fill any conceptual holes that they may have. This is especially beneficial when work students may need is not being taught as part of the current unit. Unlike other online math programs, Dreambox does not reward students for quick, correct answers. Instead, it supports students in having “productive struggle” to build conceptual understanding.**

**There is not specific district mandated homework for math. Teachers choose homework that best fits what they are working on in the classroom. We know for ELA that reading at home every day is crucial in growing readers. Because the research about math homework does not strongly correlate with student achievement, it’s possible that your child’s teacher will send home homework that looks different than homework we were accustomed to when we were students. The purpose of homework is to give students a chance to practice what they have learned and to share their learning with their parents. You may see:****A weekly open-ended inquiry problem that your child has to write a journal about and share their strategies with you****Dreambox practice (make sure students are doing this on their own without your help)****SeeSaw games and activities students are doing in class that they can practice at home****A real world reflection question for the week so that kids are looking for connections to math at home**

**The best way to support math at home is by playing games with your child! Games like Yahtzee, War, and Bingo can all help students to build number sense, while games like Blokus, Set, Qwirkle, and Memory can build spatial reasoning and geometric recognition. Your child will likely also play other games at school that build fact fluency. Ask your child’s teacher if any of those games are appropriate for practice at home. If your child is practicing fact fluency at home, ask them how they figured out the answers to push them to prove their thinking using strategies. To be fluent, students should be efficient (not necessarily fast), accurate, and flexible in their thinking. **

**There are a few ways to see what your child is doing at home. Dreambox is a great tool for extra practice at home because it aligns with the strategies students are learning at school. We recommend that parents watch their child doing some of the lessons to get a better idea of what they are working on. However, please do not help your child with Dreambox as it is an adaptive program that adjusts the level to what students need. When parents help their child on Dreambox it often becomes too hard for that student to do on their own. Students should not use paper and pencil to solve when working on Dreambox because the program gives them digital tools to use instead. **

**Another way to see what strategies your child is doing is to use math tasks from Illustrative Math. These problems are open-ended and allow for different ways of thinking. Instead of telling your child how to do the problems, use conferring questions to support them and learn more about their thinking. **
