Lower School Math

Entering Grades 1-4

Students meet with faculty three hours daily to learn, to practice and to reinforce key grade-appropriate math skills and concepts. In small groups, students entering grades 1 through 4 revisit such key math skills and concepts as: number sense, place value, rounding and estimation, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions and decimals.
Hands-on activities engage students and reinforce mathematical learning. Math games increase recall and encourage students to move from a concrete to abstract mathematical understanding. Students also practice transferring their understanding to paper using the “language of mathematics.”
Course instruction, aligned with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics guidelines, draws from a wide range of math materials, including those of Marilyn Burns, Marcy Cook, Houghton Mifflin, McLean teachers’ best practices and Singapore Math. Initial (on the first day of the program) and post-screenings document improvement. At the end of the program, teachers write a report on each student’s progress, strengths and areas needing continued support.
