MATHEMATICS at ISP: 

At ISP, math instructors use a concept-based approach that allows for inquiry and investigation.  Teachers believe in fostering growth mindset and that all students can make sense of and learn math.  Mathematics courses are aligned to the CCSS standards in grades K-10 and the IBDP in grades 11-12.  Math teachers have collaborative planning time throughout the week.  During this time, teachers create unit and daily plans, projects, and assessments.  In addition to planning and creating authentic math tasks, the teachers have time to learn and practice math instructional strategies with the support of a math coach.  The math coach provides on-going support in and out of the classroom for all math teachers including planning, modeling, co-teaching, and professional learning based on current research and technology. 

In middle school, students have two math pathways.  The primary resources include EngageNY, Inside Mathematics, and Van de Walle in grades 6-7 and the Math Vision Project – Integrated Math 1 in grade 8.  The teachers supplement math instruction with both Khan Academy and Dream Box Learning for technology.  

In high school, students have three pathways.  The primary resource for grades 9-10 is Integrated Math 2 and 3 from the Math Vision Project.  These courses offer the students an integrated approach to mathematics including topics in algebra, geometry, probability, and statistics each year.  The goal of these courses is to prepare the students for IBDP mathematics in 11th and 12th grade by providing them with opportunities to think critically and deeply about rich math tasks.
