The ability to reason quantitatively, to persevere and solve problems, to construct logical arguments supported by precise models, and to critique the reasoning of others prepares students to engage with the wider world. Mathematics provides a means to understand the world, a lens through which logic, reasoning, and critical thinking can be developed.
Mathematics instruction supports Maine’s mathematics learning standards in grades Kindergarten through 12. The Maine Department of Education mathematics specialists offer free and open resources, tools, technical assistance and professional learning opportunities on instructional practices, learning progressions, assessment, and curriculum development.
Maine DOE occasionally needs Maine educators to participate on committees or teams to provide feedback and inform decisions. Please consider enrolling in this registry for the 2018/2019 school year.
