Pre-kindergarten Mathematics

Pre-kindergarten teachers use Everyday Mathematics curriculum in their classrooms which is organized into eight topics: counting, number concepts, operations, graphing, measurement, shapes, position and spatial relationships, and patterns and sorting.  Teachers also embed mathematics into their daily classroom centers.  Research shows that learning through play is essential for young children; therefore, students are exposed to math as they play in centers of choice.  Below are a few examples of ways teachers are including math in their centers.

  • Dramatic play area – students “count” plates as they set the table.  Students have notepads and pencils and practice writing numbers as they take orders from menus; students sort items based on attributes such as shape and color.
  • Office play area – students have post-its and pens for writing phone numbers. A calculator or adding machine is also available for entering numbers.
  • Sand Table – numbers and shapes are buried in the sand for discovery.
  • Blocks – Students build and count blocks.  Blocks can be sorted according to an attribute.
  • Library Book nook – books of all kinds are available for looking at pictures and reading.  Students can count pages of a book, sort books by size, or identify geometric shapes in illustrations.
  • Writing center – students can make stories using numbers and shapes.

Kindergarten – 5th Grade

In Union Public Schools, strong mathematicians are developed through the use of the Everyday Mathematics curriculum.  Everyday Mathematics is a research-based curriculum developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics program funded by a National Science Foundation grant.  The program encourages children to understand why math is important and how they reach their answers.  Students are taught various methods for problem-solving and are encouraged to engage in real-world math application scenarios.

6th-12th Mathematics

At Union, we strive to have appropriate classes for all levels of student mathematicians.  The curriculum for each course is aligned to meet the learning needs of students and address state and/or national standards.  A complete list of the math textbooks utilized at Union can be accessed below.  State legislation requires that students complete three units of math in grades 9-12 for high school graduation.
 
In addition to the curriculum, the appropriate and daily use of calculators is introduced beginning in Algebra I and throughout the remaining math courses offered.  In Algebra I and Geometry, students use scientific calculators and are able to access class sets of Texas Instruments TI-30IIxs or TI-30 Multiview.  Beginning in Algebra II and through AP Calculus, students begin to use graphing calculators.  These classes primarily use the TI-84+ or TI-Nspire from Texas Instruments.

New website

Union Public Schools has a new website! We are pleased to work with our new provider Gabbart Communications. While it is a brand-new website, we have purposely designed it to be familiar. So most items will be found in the places in which you are accustomed to finding them. We are continuing to refine the site and more features, such as video, are coming.
