Level One – Addition and Subtraction, will focus on developing number sense & mastering Math facts. This Elementary Math class focuses on mastery, not memorization, to teach kids to develop a strong number sense and to confidently and quickly add and subtract.
Hands-on & Visual Learning
Rather than making use of worksheets for practice and diagrams for explanations we will go above and beyond the traditional page with interactive, differentiated, live lessons, manipulatives, hands-on activities, games, and the consistent, focused use of a single visual representation that builds an intuitive number sense that applies to everything from basic counting up through long division, and beyond.
Students will become confident learners who understand Math deeply enough to explain their thought process, extend their knowledge to new situations, and enjoy the learning process!
Students will use ten frames that create a framework for mental math, and help children gain critical thinking skills and empowering them to explain their thought process clearly as they work through larger Math problems.
This class will meet the needs of beginning learners and give them a “turbo boost” into Math. The course will also help older kids who have been learning Math but don’t yet feel confident in their ability to easily add and subtract large numbers, or who have not yet learned or are struggling with concepts.
Level One will help kids develop number sense and learn to add and subtract through strategic and engaging instruction and activities. (also see Level Two – Multiplication & Division)
