Mathematics support services

Mathematics support services are available to all local districts in Char-Em ISD. The goal is to ensure leadership and instruction that results in the development of students’ mathematical competencies and applications. Districts may choose from a range of pre-K through 12th grade services which all support the Michigan State Standards for mathematics.

The state standards expect that all students who are college and career ready in mathematics exhibit not only content knowledge, but also specific mathematical practices:

  • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively
  • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
  • Model with mathematics
  • Use appropriate tools strategically
  • Attend to precision
  • Look for and make use of structure
  • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

Students who achieve these standards will have the mathematical knowledge and skills necessary to become mathematically literate citizens who find success in college, career, and lifelong learning.

Services are available through area-wide professional learning and extended support as needed at a building or district level. All mathematics support has a foundation in current research. These services align with research in the areas of developmentally appropriate practices, the use of assessment to inform instruction, and a balanced approach to mathematics instructional strategies.
