Success in Mathematics Family Night: New Teaching Methods

En Español

May 2022

Dear secondary school families,

Please join us for our upcoming family night to learn how to promote your child’s success in mathematics. Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD) is partnering with the Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative to work with teachers and parents in learning about the California Framework for Mathematics, what mathematics pathways result in college and career success, and the best way to support your child’s high school mathematics learning pathway.

In our fourth parent night on Tuesday, May 24, at 6:30 pm, we will share new teaching methods used by secondary teachers in mathematics classrooms. These new methods support student engagement in mathematics. It promotes student problem-solving. Students are given interesting tasks, often from real-world situations, and learn mathematics with a deeper conceptual understanding. We will share videos of actual classrooms and discuss the educational research that supports these new teaching methods and strategies. These new methods are aligned with the draft of the new California Mathematics Framework.

SCUSD’s goal is to create a culture in which all students have access to classes that will prepare them for college and career success. In preparing to address the new framework and changes in college and university mathematics pathways for student admissions, we are hosting virtual family nights throughout this school year.

When and Where

The virtual session will be on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Attendance at previous sessions is not required.
