All of us want children throughout Michigan to be successful. An important part of student success centers around proficiency in mathematics. The laws of mathematics govern our world,  and children need a solid understanding of mathematical concepts to successfully navigate everyday life. Learning and appreciating math can help children appreciate things that they would not otherwise notice about the world.  

These Essentials seek to promote high-quality, equitable teaching and learning for children in the discipline of mathematics.  Research suggests that these eight practices have significant potential to positively affect children’s learning of mathematics.   The long-term goal is that this document will prompt shifts in systems, learning, teaching, and assessment so that each and every child develops strong mathematical understanding, skills, dispositions and identities.

Using the Mathematics Essentials will help build conceptual understanding among our learners.  Join us at #MIearlymathEIPs
