我们的学生学会在日常生活中看到数学, and we constantly encourage our students to visualize numbers and look for mathematical patterns.At every grade level we learn that math is not an isolated subject.Students see patterns and geometric shapes in our gardening class, or bridge social studies and math by creating shops in class where items can be purchased reinforcing addition, 减法, 钱有意义, 社区, 商品和服务.
Students begin exploring numbers and mathematical ideas with concrete materials, 图形表示的进展, 最后, 用符号抽象地推理. Our classes are structured so that they use a variety of manipulative materials, 适龄的技术, and games to construct their own meanings for key mathematical concepts. We use flexible groupings and differentiate instruction so that each child feels competent and challenged. We recognize that enduring learning takes time and practice. Students master the basic number facts through the use of efficient strategies
幼儿园的学生 are guided towards discovering the relevance of math in their daily lives.Each day begins by counting the number of days in school and exploring how to use the calendar during their morning message.Children learn to count, use one to one correspondence, collect data, and compare number quantities.Kindergarten explores composing and decomposing numbers up to 20, 通过一和十的倍数来学习.Students learn to understand addition as putting sets together and adding to and understand 减法 as taking apart and taking from.
