The mission of the Mathematics Branch is to implement a balanced instructional program that provides ALL students with the opportunities, experiences and resources to be successful. The expectation is that ALL students will become proficient in basic computational and procedural skills, develop conceptual understanding, and become adept problem solvers. The goals of the Mathematics Program are twofold:
These goals are supported strategically through four program components:
- The development and use of grade specific instructional units.
- The use of teacher experts, school site coaches and local district leadership to guide professional development.
- The use and analysis of formative periodic assessments.
- The use of assessment data to focus and implement immediate intervention where students most need help.

The Division of Instruction is partnering with ConnectED to provide the Mathematics Design Collaborative (MDC). MDC focuses on the formative assessment process and strategies. Teachers will be provided a two-day and follow-up training on MDC. Click here for the flyer.
My Math Digital Access 2016-2017
Starting on August 1, the My Math digital content access for 2016-2017 will be through the LAUSD Single Sign On. Using Firefox, the preferred browser, teachers and students will navigate to: https://connected.mcgraw-hill.com/lausd and enter their SSO for access. Teacher and student accounts will automatically be populated with the grade level textbook. Teacher accounts will automatically be populated with the class roster. Administrators and out-of-the-classroom personnel who support math instruction will be given access instructions in August 2016.
ALEKS online remediation, a component of My Math, will not be continuing for the 2016-2017 school year. This was a one-year purchase. Some school sites are funding their own continued access.
