Math, PK

In PK-4th grade, we use the Everyday Math curriclum from the University of Chicago. In PK, math skills focus include number recognition and counting. Building upon these foundational skills, PK students also learn to connect numbers to quantities through one-to-one correspondence and even beginning concepts of adding together and taking away. All of this is taught through both direct instruction small group lessons and incorporated organically in daily routines such as group time, work time, ... Read More

Math, JK

In Junior Kindergarten, math skills include building on previous knowledge. By taking number recognition and counting to a new level, students apply their learning and explore deeper concepts such as operations, measurement, graphing, higher level patterning, and positions and spatial relationships. All of this is taught through both direct instruction small group lessons and incorporated organically in daily routines such as group time, work time, and free play with classroom manipulatives. ...

Math 6

Sixth Grade Math focuses primarily on four areas. First, the sixth-grade math student will continue to build on fifth-grade fractional concepts and relationships and expand on their understanding of fractional division. In addition, the student will extend their understanding of the number system and quantities to include working with rational numbers such as signed integers. They will also apply reasoning about order and absolute value with regard to the location on the coordinate plane. Als... Read More
