Big Ideas: Through a framework of developmental skills and processes, to be expanded on in later grades, students learn to apply mathematical concepts to a range of real life situations. Emphasis is on mathematical discussion, writing and representation. Highlights include data analysis, place value, addition/subtraction, multiplication, graphing, division, measurement, fractions, decimals, geometry, and multiplication of larger numbers.
Big Ideas: Activities are tailored to students' diverse learning styles, and include hands-on lessons, game creation and word problems to facilitate the connections between math concepts and real life situations. The Brain Breakers program and computer lab activities also help develop math literacy, creativity and problem solving. Highlights include number concepts, addition/subtraction, multiplication/division, geometry, patterns, fractions/decimals, measurement and statistics/data.
Big Ideas: By participating in hands-on activities, students develop their problem-solving skills, mathematical processes and computational abilities. Emphasis is on developing mathematical reasoning using verbal, concrete and symbolic representations. Highlights include decimals, fractions, percents, order of operations, area, perimeter, volume, patterns and equations, graphing, transformations, multiples, factors, mixed and improper fractions, ratios, angles and triangles.
Big Ideas: Through a range of hands-on activities, students further develop their problem-solving skills, mathematical processes and computational abilities. Emphasis is on developing mathematical reasoning using verbal, concrete and symbolic representations. Highlights include working with data, percents, probability, equations, patterns, expressions, integers, circles, geometry, measurement, fractions and transformations.
