Math

Littleton Public Schools adopted the Colorado Academic Standards in Mathematics in August 2010.  We use those standards as our curriculum and the Board adopts materials that are then used as a primary resource in classrooms to address the standards.  In May of 2014 we adopted new materials for use in teaching mathematics in secondary level mathematics (middle and high school content).  This year there is a committee working to review and select elementary math materials to recommend to the Board of Education.  Please select the appropriate link below to learn more about mathematics materials for the grade level you are interested in.

If you have questions about the mathematics curriculum (Colorado Academic Standards) and/or materials, please do not hesitate to email Ann Summers, Math and Intervention Specialist or call at (303)347-3538.

Interested in hearing more about the new math resources?

Buildings will host family math nights for their communities later this year. Parents who would like more information now are encouraged to attend an overview session in the Boardroom of the Education Services Center (5776 S Crocker St Littleton CO 80120). Please use this link to register.

Elementary Mathematics

Littleton Public Schools elementary schools are now using Bridges with Number Corner. This resource was adopted by the Board of Education on April 23, 2015.  All teachers and specialists have participated in comprehensive professional development on the new resource.
 
This implementation is the natural next step in our implementation of the Colorado Academic Standards in Mathematics which began with kindergarten and first grade in 2011. Bridges with Number Corner provide robust instruction in the Colorado Academic Standards in Mathematics and have been developed to ensure the focus, coherence and rigor called for in the standards. Students will develop conceptual understanding and procedural fluency which will be used when students are applying their mathematics knowledge in order to solve mathematical problems.
 
This resource is published by the Math Learning Center and parents are encouraged to access the resources available on their website. Please watch for the family letter that will be sent home with your child at the beginning of each unit.
 
Homework is designed to coordinate with the classroom learning and will be sent home in the form of Home Connections.

Middle School Mathematics

Littleton Public Schools adopted Connected Mathematics Program 3 (CMP3) along with Math XL in April of 2014 for sixth, seventh and eighth grade mathematics instruction.  Teachers make use of unit texts and may also use the e-book that provides the text online. 

Parents can access more information about Connected Mathematics by visiting the same site that students use to log in to their e-book mymathuniverse.com

In addition to CMP3, teachers use Math XL to provide additional skill practice and assessment opportunities for students.  Students access this account at mathxlforschool.com

Please contact Ann Summers, Math and Intervention Specialist at asummers[at]lps.k12.co[dot]us or 303-347-3538 with additional questions.

High School Mathematics

Littleton Public Schools Board of Education adopted Agile Mind as the instructional resource for Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II.  As a district this resource is being implemented over two years with all Algebra I classrooms using Agile Mind in 2014-2015.  Teachers have the option of using Agile Mind in Geometry and Algebra II in 2014-2015. 

In the first year of implementation, an evaluation of the resource and it’s impact on student learning is being conducted.

Pending favorable results of the evaluation, all Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II classrooms in Littleton Public Schools will use Agile Mind as the primary resource in 2015-2016.

Please contact Ann Summers, Math and Intervention specialist at asummers[at]lps.k12.co[dot]us or 303-347-3538 with additional questions.
