District Wide

Fayetteville-Manlius Elementary Math Curriculum   


     During the summer of 2010, New York adopted the New York P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics.  Starting in the 2012-2013 school year all New York school districts were required to implement these Common Core Standards in grades K-8.


     For all grades, K-5, our district instruction is primarily supported by TERC: Investigations in Number, Data, and Space (K-5).  Investigations is a research-based program that emphasizes critical thinking, reasoning and communication.   The program develops in-depth number sense before introducing the traditional methods or "short cuts."  With this approach, students are more able to make connections in later grades with more complex problems and topics, such as algebra.   


"Each time one prematurely teaches a child something he could have discovered for himself, 
that child is kept from inventing it and consequently from understanding it completely."
-Jean Piaget
