About our Math Program
Beginning in Pre-Kindergarten and continuing through grade five, our students learn the foundations of number systems and how to explain their answers by looking for multiple entry points. They use abstract reasoning to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others and create mathematical models of problems that arise in the real world. A cornerstone of our program are the mathematical discussions that occur between students during math where every student is asked to explain their own reasoning behind their problem-solving methods. Our Bridges for Mathematics (link opens in new window) program helps students to look for and make use of structures and patterns that occur in math including the understanding that multiplication is the same thing as adding the same groups of numbers.
In Middle School, students continue this exploration with further exploration of ratios and proportional relationships, the number system (including fractions, decimals, and rational numbers), algebraic expressions, geometry, statistics, and probability. Students in middle school are utilizing the College Preparatory Math (CPM) (link opens in new window) math series and our math program is appropriately leveled to meet the needs of all learners.
