Bronx Charter School for Children uses a standards-based, workshop model approach to instruction. Their approach for teaching math is firmly rooted in well-established methodology. By relying heavily on the use of manipulatives, primarily Cuisenaire rods, teachers ensure, even in the earliest stages, that students develop models for thinking mathematically. This provides children with a sound basis for accomplishing two essential goals, they become swift and accurate in their computation skills and they focus on problem-solving activities that involve real world application of those skills. The approach is particularly well suited to helping students master the proficiencies outlined in New York State's mathematics standards, since the children must not only arrive at correct answers, but must show an awareness of the mathematical process that leads to them.
