Adopting Fishtank Math

Our Math Approach

Anchoring standards-aligned, content-rich tasks

The content of a curriculum plays a critical role in student learning, and this content must not only be standards-aligned but also rich in a way that engages all students in multiple layers of understanding.

Communicating mathematical understanding

Providing students with opportunities to communicate and discuss their thinking improves student understanding, provides teachers with useful information to inform instruction, and shifts power away from teachers being the possessors of knowledge to students being the constructors of it.

Valuing the process of learning

Learning is an iterative process where students make meaning over time. Focusing on the process of how students learn, rather than the final result of their work, supports a growth mindset and encourages students to be active participants in their own learning.

Monitoring student progress

Monitoring student progress through various kinds of assessment is an integral part of a curriculum that informs teachers’ instructional decisions and students’ metacognition.

Honoring and building teacher expertise

Teachers bring their expertise to their classrooms, and providing them with a curriculum that empowers them to make the best decisions for their students will help drive student learning.

School Spotlight

Bridge Boston Charter School

"One of our instructional goals this year was to see more student talk and less teacher talk in every lesson. We have noticed a good increase in student talk, even if it's talking to another student and not necessarily whole class discussion, but we have noticed a big difference."
