Our program encourages students to explore mathematics by integrating computational skills; problem-solving and logical thinking; applications; and hands-on, interactive learning experiences. In addition to basic computation and number skills, all students learn about geometry, logic, probability and statistics, measurement and algebra.
Math manipulatives such as geoboards, tangrams, perceptual puzzle blocks, and unifix cubes are used extensively to further the understanding of mathematical concepts and reinforce skill acquisition.
Students work individually and in small groups to maximize their mathematical understanding. Teachers are able to provide instruction and projects for students at different levels. Risk-taking, trial and error, and finding several ways to solve the same problem are encouraged. Students learn that justifying, comparing, and explaining results are also basic mathematical skills.
