Chittenango Elementary Mathematics
A complete mathematics program develops students' understanding and facility with mathematics. This type of learning requires the use of manipulatives, opportunities to explore problems for solutions, and direct instruction that helps children to see patterns and think abstractly.

The Chittenango elementary school mathematics curriculum focuses on developing:

  • Strong number sense - relating numbers to one another.
  • The ability to manipulate numbers to solve problems.
  • Problem-solving skills, i.e., applying a variety of strategies to solve problems.
  • Computational fluency - using a variety of strategies for computation and choosing the optimal strategy for a given situation.

Bridgeport and Bolivar Road elementary schools use the research- and standards-based mathematics program from Pearson Publishing:  Investigations in Number, Data, and Space 3, 2017 edition.  This is a program designed to develop an understanding of mathematics by focusing on number sense, patterns, and mathematical connections. Our students learn a variety of computational strategies and skills, but more importantly, develop an understanding of mathematical concepts and relationships. To learn more about this program go to the Math Investigations website.

The Chittenango Middle School Mathematics Curriculum is designed to help students develop understanding, reasoning, and ways of thinking about numbers, geometry, measurement, algebra, probability, and statistics. Middle school students have a perspective all their own. We try to tap into their world with experiences and information that will grab their attention.


Through the use of a variety of teaching strategies we adapt to each studentÂ’s unique learning need while also improving their performance. We are currently using two textbooks in the middle school, Scott Foresman-Addison Wesley Middle School Math and the Connected Mathematics Series.

Chittenango Middle School

The Chittenango High School Mathematics program provides courses that will enable students to understand and use basic mathematical ideas including number sense and numerical concepts, operations on numbers, measurement, geometry, algebra, trigonometry, probability and statistics and calculus. Students need to develop the ability to communicate and reason mathematically, apply problem-solving skills to real world problems and to have the knowledge, skills and understanding to meet the demands of an ever-changing world.


All courses are instructed using the New York State Mathematics Standards and the key areas of mathematical reasoning, number and numeration, operations, modeling/multiple representation, measurement, uncertainty and patterns/functions.
