Mission

 
The mission of the Mathematics Department in Griffin-Spalding County Schools is to support the development of all students as problem solvers through effective implementation of the Georgia Standards of Excellence for Mathematics, and to attain significantly higher levels of student achievement in mathematics as measured by state and/or district assessments.

Vision

 
The vision of the Mathematics Department in Griffin-Spalding County Schools is to ensure that effective mathematics classrooms exist where –

All students are:
  1. Meaningfully engaged with both the content and practice standards of the Georgia Standards of Excellence for Mathematics
  2. Taking part in solving rigorous problems in real life contexts
  3. Actively participating in mathematical discourse
  4. Contributing to knowledge within a learning community that values their voice and ideas
  5. Formulating mathematical claims that both support and challenge the thinking of their peers
All teachers are:
  1. Using questioning techniques that facilitate student learning and support students’ use of the Standards for Mathematical Practice
  2. Providing varying levels of support as they move students to deeper levels of understanding
  3. Emphasizing process and sense making over answer-getting
  4. Requiring participation from 100% of their students
  5. Continually looking for evidence of the level of students’ understanding and providing frequent and specific feedback based upon that evidence
All learning environments are:
 
  1. Safe and supportive such that
      a) all ideas and methods are valued
      b) students choose and share their methods
      c) mistakes are learning opportunities for everyone
      d) correctness resides in mathematical argument
  2. Structured and organized to maximize time on task
