The PUHSD Mathematics program, E2 Math goal is to excel in all areas of teaching and learning. We strive to be the role model for collaborative learning, innovative technology and a commitment to continual learning. Our curriculum is aligned with the AZ 2010 State Standards (Common Core State Standards) and is designed to prepare students for the AIMS graduation requirement and college and career readiness. Through participation in our math program, students are engaged in classrooms with teachers using best mathematical practices, which emphasize both conceptual and procedural understanding. Students become powerful mathematical thinkers who know how and when to apply the mathematics they have learned, in a wide variety of contexts.
