• GCISD Mathematics Vision
    GCISD mathematics community believes that every student's future matters today.  Therefore, we will foster students' ability to become problem solvers, critical thinkers, mathematical communicators, strategic decision makers, and relationship detectors.

     

    GCISD Mathematics Mission

    Our mission as the GCISD mathematics community is to utilize a learning platform to build students' capacity in 21st century mathematics knowledge and skills so that they will succeed in whatever path they choose.

     

     

    Math students in the 21st century can:

    • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
    • Understand the relationships between problem scenarios and mathematical representations as well as how the symbols represent the strategy for solution
    • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
    • Move flexibly between real-world scenarios and mathematical representations
    • Use appropriate tools strategically to aid their problem solving process
    • Attend to precision
    • Look closely to discern a pattern or a structure and evaluate efficient strategies for solutions
    • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning through discovery
     
     

    Two students use pattern blocks to represent fractions.  One student explains his thinking to the other student about how the pattern blocks relate to the fraction he wrote.
