Our Math course focuses on computational fluency, conceptual understanding, and problem-solving. We extend work with place value to numbers through 100 and emphasize the fluency of addition and subtraction facts. There is a focus on number sentences and problem-solving with addition and subtraction.
Students will work with fundamental concepts like money, telling time, measurements, and ordering events. They will also begin to cover more advanced topics like the attributes of geometric figures, as well as patterning and data literacy.
