In Leander ISD we believe all students can become mathematically proficient. Through problem-solving situations, students are building conceptual and content understanding while developing numerical fluency and mathematical vocabulary. A Leander math class is a student-centered learning environment where students are participating in hands-on activities with the use of manipulatives. We encourage the use of multiple problem-solving strategies and math conversation that enables students to justify their thinking and determine reasonableness. Most importantly, we want students to see math as challenging, fun, and doable!
