Vision for the Cumberland Valley Mathematics Department
The Cumberland Valley Mathematics Department will have a coordinated, student-centered program that teaches students to appreciate the beauty of math and to apply the mathematics they learn to real life problem solving situations. The teachers will work collaboratively, use technology appropriately, and use manipulatives as needed to help students reach their maximum potential. Teachers and students will regularly reflect, analyze, and evaluate their teaching & learning practices to improve student achievement.
Goals to help accomplish this vision for the
2016 - 2017 school year are:
* Achieve a 90% proficiency level in all grades on the 2016-2017 PSSA tests and strive to achieve the same results on the Algebra 1 Keystone Exam.
* Teachers will implement test taking strategies into their daily instruction so students are better prepared for standardized testing.
* Teachers will continue to work in teams to implement common assessments for all levels.
