Des Moines Public Schools Mathematics

The goal of the Des Moines Public Schools K-12 mathematics program is for all students to achieve mathematical proficiency by developing an understanding of math concepts and a fluency in skill procedures. Students who understand a concept can identify examples and non-examples; describe the idea with words, symbols, tables, graphs, and models; and apply the concept in problem-solving situations. Procedural proficiency includes recall of basic facts (addition, multiplication, subtraction, and division) and the use of algorithms – step-by-step mathematical procedures – to produce a solution.

The end result is the ability to think and reason mathematically and use mathematics to solve problems in authentic contexts.

The expectation of Des Moines Public Schools is that
