Math

Both early-childhood tracks cover the same foundational math skills, so that by the beginning of 4th grade, students are ready to tackle order of operations, fractions, rates and ratios. Building on their experience working with hands-on manipulatives, children in the elementary years move from tactile lessons to delving into more abstract concepts and applying their mathematical knowledge to new situations.

The bulk of fourth grade math focuses on multiplication, division and fractions, and students are introduced to a variety of techniques with the goal of helping them discover and experiment with diverse calculation methods. In addition to developing concepts and skills, classes aim to strengthen students’ confidence as mathematicians.
