"In this changing world, those who understand and can do mathematics will have significantly enhanced opportunities and options for shaping their futures. Mathematical competence opens doors to productive futures. A lack of mathematical competence keeps those doors closed..All students should have the opportunity and the support necessary to learn significant mathematics with depth and understanding. There is no conflict between equity and excellence."

The goal of the Washington County Public Schools pre-K-12 mathematics program is for all students to achieve mathematical proficiency by developing both conceptual understanding and procedural fluency. The end result is the ability to think and reason mathematically and use mathematics to solve problems in authentic contexts.
Elementary Math Content
Mathematics is a tool we use to understand and interpret our world. In our increasingly technological economy, those who can understand and apply mathematics have significantly enhanced opportunities to achieve success in continuing education and in life. The key to opening the door to these opportunities is a deep understanding of important mathematical concepts and procedures.
The integration of both mathematical concepts and processes is essential for meaningful understanding of mathematics. In this framework, the concepts of mathematics are organized under six strands:
- Number Relationships and Computation
These concepts are developed through the four mathematical processes that are organized into four strands:
- Problem Solving
- Communication (including representation)
