At the elementary level, our mathematics program provides your children with the type of learning required in a 21st century classroom. In their classes, your children learn the rigor of mathematics, they experience the relevance and role of mathematics in their learning, and they develop learning relationships with their peers and teachers. Our teachers help children develop their mathematical fluency and critical thinking skills, do problem solving, communicate their understanding, and work collaboratively with other learners.
At Theodore Roosevelt School and James H. Vernon School, children learn about the topics of Counting, Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Number and Operations in Base Ten, Measurement and Data, Operations with Fractions, Ratios and Proportional Relationships, The Number System, as well as Expressions and Equations. Children develop both their procedural fluency in mathematics and their conceptual understanding of mathematics.
The links at the left show a brief description of the topics that your children learn in each elementary grade.
