3 - 11 Mathematics

Our Approach

The goal of our mathematics program is to provide our students with the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in college and beyond. At Match, we seek to inspire our scholars to pursue advanced math courses, and we provide them with the foundations they will need to be successful in advanced math study.

Our math curriculum is rooted in the following core beliefs about quality math instruction.

Content-rich Tasks

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.

Practice and Feedback

We believe that practice and feedback are essential to developing students’ conceptual understanding and fluency.

Productive Struggle

We believe that students develop essential strategies for tackling complex problems, and build non-cognitive skills such as grit and resilience, through productive struggle.

Procedural Fluency AND Conceptual Understanding

We believe that knowing “how” to solve a problem is not enough; students must also know “why” mathematical procedures and concepts exist.

Communicating Mathematical Understanding

We believe that the process of communicating their mathematical thinking helps students solidify their learning and helps teachers assess student understanding.
