The Irvington Public Schools’ Department of Mathematics ensures a rigorous instructional program through a balanced focus on conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application with equal intensity. We use enVision, a nationally recognized math program, which focuses on deep conceptual math understanding. Therefore, scholars in grades K – 5 regularly engage in modeling with manipulatives, problem-based learning, and mathematical discourse. Scholars are encouraged to express their mathematical ideas using multiple representations and accountable math talk.

Classroom lessons are designed based upon a gradual release model of instruction and also include embedded differentiated supports to ensure the curriculum is accessible to all. We use i-Ready, an online diagnostic and intervention program, to support every learner on their path toward grade-level success. As a result, scholars learn to become more independent in their thinking and more confident in their own abilities to be successful in mathematics.

As the Supervisor of Mathematics K-5, I am committed to ensuring high quality mathematics curriculum, programs, and instruction that meet the diverse needs of our scholars and promote improved student achievement.
