Teaneck Public School's K-12 Mathematics program aims to provide students with the necessary skills and concepts required to be competitive in the twenty-first century global economy. The mathematics curriculum consists of courses, units of instruction, and activities designed to address the mathematics needs of all students. The program emphasizes the development of the ability to analyze and solve problems of a variety of types and varying degrees of difficulty; understanding of the nature and structure of mathematics for application across disciplines; and the ability to share their thinking and engage in reasoning alongside others.

Principles of High Quality Mathematics Instruction

  • Instruction is based on formative assessments which ground instructional practice, pacing and learning;
  • Promoting deep learning of mathematics by focusing on developing and understanding of concepts and procedures through problem solving, reasoning, and dialogue;
  • Classroom talk and discussion are critical components for deeply understanding and sharing their thinking and engaging in reasoning alongside others; 
  • Access to high-quality tasks and purposeful questions that
    • elicit student thinking;
    • allow students to connect representations; and
    • explain mathematical reasoning.
