Math

Mathematics equips students with knowledge, skills, and habits of mind that are essential for successful and rewarding participation in an information and technology based society. R. Roger Rowe students are able to think critically about complex issues, analyze and adapt to new situations, solve problems of various kinds, and communicate their thinking effectively.

Our math program boasts a cohesive unit of dedicated specialists who constantly communicate to ensure that all students benefit from the vertical and horizontal articulation built into our unique program. The custom curriculum begins with a foundation of the Connected Mathematics Project 3 (CMP3), Singapore Math and the San Dieguito Math Vision Project. The RSF math team further customizes the curriculum and collaborates with the science department in a constant effort to provide first-rate cross-curricular instruction in our classrooms.

The standard math track at R. Roger Rowe is more akin to an advanced track at other area schools, but we also offer an advanced/accelerated track beginning in grade three. In addition to built in (advanced/accelerated program) and custom individual differentiation in the classroom, our students benefit from the one-of-a-kind Math Plus class, where they receive additional math instruction each week. This allows teachers to meet students where they currently are, and work on the connections that allow them to formulate new ideas. This 100% flexible class is tailored on an individual daily or weekly need, and provides time to support students who are struggling, and to challenge students who are excelling.

The results speak for themselves: our students have unequivocally and consistently benefited from our superior program comprised of a team of committed specialists, a custom curriculum, built in and individual differentiation, and additional dedicated instructional time. Learning mathematics results in much more than a mastery of basic skills, and the R. Roger Rowe math program provides the framework for students to excel in other curriculum areas, in top area high schools, and beyond.
