Junior High – Math
Arlington Elementary School District’s math department believes in providing all students a quality mathematics education that is focused on basic arithmetic facts, repetition, mathematical thinking and reasoning.
A student’s foundation in basic skills must be strong in order to build complex mathematical structures. Therefore, we believe that it is essential for all students to:
- Develop fluency and accuracy with computation of rational numbers.
- Work extensively with the base ten place value number system.
- Use fractions and percentages in various contexts.
- Convert and compare within the real number system.
