The mission of the Math Department is to provide an engaging and structured curriculum with teaching that supports student growth and development in problem solving, critical thinking, and math fluency while preparing students for success in college and in the workplace.
 Meaningful Math is problembased. The student text consists, primarily, of problems for students to solve. There are no worked out examples for students to follow. The text's problems really are problems—mathematical situations that are new to students, requiring them to figure out what to do when they don't know what to do. Problem solving is one of the overarching mathematical content goals of Meaningful Math, and engaging in problem solving daily is how students learn this content.
 Meaningful Math is designed to engage students in doing mathematics. Doing mathematics is about searching for patterns and structure in quantitative and spatial situations; finding solutions to novel problems; posing and testing conjectures; convincing others of the validity of results by explaining, justifying, and proving; extending problems and situations by posing new questions; generalizing from individual problems and situations to classes of problems or situations.
 Teachers have very different, but critical, roles in Meaningful Math classrooms. The Meaningful Math curriculum assumes that students will spend considerable class time working on problems in small groups. Teachers will establish and make use of productive norms and expectations for these interactions, and monitor student thinking and learning.
 Assessment of student learning is multidimensional. The assessment components built into Meaningful Math —including inclass assessment tasks, P.O.W.s, and portfolios—are designed to help teachers and students compile several different types of evidence of student learning. This body of evidence will both document and support learning.
