Adopting Fishtank Math
We believe that students learn best when asked to solve problems that spark their curiosity, require them to make novel connections between concepts, and may offer more than one avenue to the solution.
We believe that practice and feedback are essential to developing students’ conceptual understanding and fluency.
We believe that students develop essential strategies for tackling complex problems, and build non-cognitive skills such as grit and resilience, through productive struggle.
We believe that knowing “how” to solve a problem is not enough; students must also know “why” mathematical procedures and concepts exist.
We believe that the process of communicating their mathematical thinking helps students solidify their learning and helps teachers assess student understanding.
