Lower School Mathematics

1 hour/day

In math, students develop a broad understanding of mathematical concepts and an in-depth knowledge of mathematical operations and procedures. Concepts are taught using the Math in Focus Singapore math program. This challenging curriculum focuses on teaching fewer concepts with greater depth and more complex problem solving than typical U.S. programs. By beginning with concrete examples, moving to pictorial demonstrations, and then connecting to abstract concepts, students acquire skills to tackle increasingly difficult problems. In third grade and fourth grade, small group work in math lab helps us meet individual needs for enrichment or remediation. These highly targeted groups ensure every student is challenged at his or her level.
