K- 8 Math

The River Vale School District is extremely excited to introduce our new, regionally developed K-8 mathematics curriculum for the 2018-2019 school-year. Over the past three years teachers and administrators in River Vale have worked with our regional partners in Montvale, Hillsdale, Woodcliff Lake, and the Pascack Valley Regional School District to develop a curriculum where conceptual knowledge is the foundation upon which students build procedural fluency. 

The curriculum is greatly influenced by the work of Jo Boaler, a Professor of Mathematics at the Stanford Graduate School of Education, and supports the idea that every child can be successful at math, and math instruction should foster the development of a growth mindset where students make connections, engage in meaningful conversations, persevere through complex problems, and interact flexibly with numbers in a rigorous way.  To learn more about the region's new mathematics curriculum, please enjoy the presentation below!
