The mission of the Mathematics Branch is to ensure that all learners will have equitable access to a balanced and culturally relevant instructional program that provides all students with the experiences, opportunities, and resources to develop and communicate deep conceptual understanding, to be procedurally proficient, and become adept problem solvers in math.
All LAUSD students will identify as mathematicians, see the beauty and joy in mathematics, and use their math knowledge and skills as tools for empowerment and liberation, in service of becoming change agents within their local or global community. To build this identity, TK-12 Mathematics teachers and leaders in LAUSD will provide opportunities for all students to engage in mathematical discourse, sense-making and meaningful problem-solving to develop open, inquiring, and demanding minds with the confidence to approach novel situations with adaptability, insight, and creativity. Mathematics Theory of Action
The goals of the Mathematics Program are twofold:
- Numeracy goal: Move students, on average, 40 points closer to proficiency on Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) math from 2019 to 2026 in Grades 3-8.
- Postsecondary goal: Increase to 70% the percentage of students in a graduating 9th-12th grade cohort demonstrating college and career readiness with a “C” or better on A-G approved course.
