__I.GENERAL OBJECTIVES__** **

**The goals in mathematics education are for students to:**

**1. ****Develop fluency in basic computational skills.**

**2. ****Develop an understanding of mathematical concepts.**

**3. ****Apply mathematical concepts and skills and the relationships among them to solve problem situations of varying complexities. To accomplish this goal, students will need to develop a repertoire of skills and strategies for solving a variety of problem types.**

**4. ****Communicate precisely about quantities, logical relationships, and unknown values through the use of signs, symbols, models, graphs, and mathematical terms.**

**5. ****Reason mathematically by gathering data, analyzing evidence, and building arguments, to support or refute hypotheses.**

**6. ****Make connections among mathematical ideas and other disciplines.**

**7. ****Help students, at all ability levels, to enjoy Math.**

**8. ****Provide challenging experiences in Math. **

**9. ****Find useful applications of mathematics to everyday life situations.**

**10. ****Build self-confidence in the student by teaching successful ways to problem-solve.**

**11. ****Provide an environment which encourages active participation by all students.**
