    Although our Math Curriculum is following McGraw Hill's "My Math" program, we are able to utilize many different resources to support our students in Math.  The basis of all of the units is "hands on".  Teachers and students use manipulatives to learn new skills and to become proficient in previously learned skills.  All of the teachers have access to My Math and the materials from this program that correlate to the Model Curriculum.  Our school district also purchased a subscription to Reflex math; this is a website where students can practice math facts on the computer.  The interactive projectors that are in every classroom are a phenomenal tool for playing math games, either as a whole class or in a small group.  When using a combination of all of the above materials, teachers are making math fun for everyone!
