Dalton Students Getting Hands-On With Math

Dalton teachers have been hard at work to implement our new Math Program, Everyday Mathematics.  This program address California Common Core State Standards and addresses the skills students need to really understand Math concepts and apply them effectively. These skills, which focus on critical thinking, will prepare students for college, career and beyond.
