The purpose of teaching mathematics is to help students develop the overarching (or transferable) skills of learning and performing mathematics, just as the goals of science, communication arts and the languages are to develop ways to learn and act as scientists, writers and linguists. HS math teachers will learn to organize course expectations and standards around HOW to learn mathematics, to provide greater clarity and focus on communicating what areas need further growth and what areas continue to be strong (and ready for extension) to families. In addition, since transferable skills transcend coursework, teachers will plan to help students develop ways of learning (in addition to the content or the what of learning.) This is essential in developing an efficacious mindset in our students.
