MATH: Building 21st Century Reasoning and Thinking Skills

The Standards for Mathematical Practice highlight the processes and proficiencies necessary for math education.

Using state–of–the–art technology and proven-effective strategies, Scholastic’s math programs help students build strong mathematical reasoning skills by focusing on three key areas:

  • Maximizing instructional time
  • Differentiating lessons for whole and small group and for individualized instruction
  • Performing ongoing assessments

These areas add up to an education that prepares our students to compete on a global scale and pursue careers in the game–changing fields of science, technology, and engineering.
