Mathematics: An update on our journey

Where we’ve been, where we’re going as we help each student become a mathematician

Math is in the spotlight. Reports of test scores, opinion articles pitting those who wonder if calculus is still important against those who find it essential and headlines about essentials skills for the jobs of the future are in the news.

A team of Spring Lake Park Schools teachers tackled some of the very same questions that have become more prevalent in the public domain in our K-12 math study completed during the 2017-18 school year. Learn more about our work in mathematics and what’s happened since then and our continued efforts in the area of mathematics.
