Elementary Math Description

Beginners/Basics

Level B :

• addition and subtraction facts to 18, place value to the thousands,

• geometry,

• measurement,

• time,

• money, and

• basic fractions.

• Problem solving and place value are emphasized throughout.

Level C

• continue to build on known addition and subtraction facts

• 2-digit mental calculations

• introduces multiplication and fractions

•  Other topics include area and perimeter, measurement, money, time, and basic fractions.

• Begin working with drawing tools to explore geometric designs.

• Problem solving is emphasized.

Intermediate

Level D

• Build on the meaning and properties of multiplication and division, along with the basic facts

• multiplying a 4-digit number by a 1-digit number

• rounding

• numbers to millions

• area and measurement in both the US customary and metric systems

• fractions

• graphing

• continue work with geometry and angles using drawing tools.

• Problem solving with all four operations is emphasized.

• Daily card games are included in the lessons.

Elementary / Intermediate Homework also includes card games for practice and to cement skills.

Our foundational program for math is Right Start.  Right Start uses a combination of visual and hands-on methods which result in excellent retention and understanding.

In addition we may use Mathtacular, Schoolhouse Rock, Math It, etc in our Math Centers.

Singapore, Beast Academy, or Mathematical Reasoning is provided for students that benefit from workbook pages, story approach, or repetition.

Students spend time each Tuesday and Thursday in our Math Centers in which they participate in math activities that provide the repetition necessary to cement their math knowledge and skills over time.

Middle School Math Description

Middle School Math, levels E - Pre-Algebra is where we solidify a students knowledge of arithmetic, vocabulary, the four operations, decimals, fractions, percents, geometry, pre-algebra, and practical skills.  Our hands-on, visual curriculum provides opportunities for students to use the math skills and knowledge they have attained for a true mastery of concepts.

Level E

• multiplication of multi-digit numbers by two-digits,

• division of multi-digits by a single digit

• equivalent and mixed number fractions

• prime numbers

• factors

• decimals to the hundredths

• percents.

• Algebraic concepts are introduced and problem solving is emphasized throughout.

• In geometry they study classification of triangles and polygons, symmetry, reflections, angle measurement, and work with 3-dimensional figures.

• Measurement, elapsed time, distance, money and capacity problems are explored.

Level F

• addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of fractions and mixed fractions, with both like and unlike denominators.

• square and cubic numbers, along with exponents, percentages and decimals.

• Short and long division are covered including working with remainders.

• Area and volume of geometric figures are addressed, along with converting units of measurement.

• Probability and coordinate systems are also introduced.

Level G / H: Pre-Algebra

Learn mathematics hands-on and visually through geometry. Topics include:

• triangles,

• area,

• volume,

• ratios,

• Pythagorean theorem, and

• tiling,

• and so forth, while practicing arithmetic, fractions, and decimals.

Depending on a student's math knowledge and aptitude, we begin to move towards Algebra by completing the Key To Algebra books during F, G, and H to familiarize student with vocabulary and concepts and then begin Algebra I at any time they are ready.

High School Math

We have a Math Lab in which students are individually assessed and placed and able to work at their own pace.  Our Math Lab Supervisor is a skilled tutor that provides help with their lessons as well as accountability, scheduling, or encouragement.

Choices for curriculum range from online to print, depending on student preference and learning style.  We have experience using CTC, Videotext, Math U See, Schoolhouse Teachers, ALEKS, Abeka, Key To series, Holt, Teaching Textbooks, Mathematical Reasoning, and Saxon over the years and can help with fitting a curriculum to fit your needs.
