# the growing iq curriculum

The Growing IQ curriculum is anchored in six different focus areas of mathematics.

## THE REAL NUMBER SYSTEM.

Number sense is a major component of a student's general intuition about numbers and serves as the foundation for more advanced number skills.

## EQUATIONS AND EXPRESSIONS.

Arithmetic builds intuitive understandings of operations to make generalizations, building pathways to algebraic understandings.

## INPUTS AND OUTPUTS.

Functions are relationships between a set of inputs and permissible outputs.  They are fundamental understandings in higher mathematics.

## SPATIAL PROPERTIES.

Geometric thinking requires reasoning with the properties and relations of geometric figures: points, lines, angles, surfaces, solids, and dimensionality.

## NUMERICAL DATA.

Collecting, summarizing, comparing, and presenting data requires advanced analytical tools and understanding.

## LOGIC AND REASONING.

Critical thinking is the process of skillfully applying, analyzing, synthesizing, evaluating, and conceptualizing information to reach conclusions.
