MATHEMATICS

Across the grade levels, students learn Math through daily lessons, hands-on activities, real-world connections, literature and technology. Key emphasis is on the development of higher order thinking skills, math word problems, and fluency with math vocabulary. Our Sadlier Math curriculum takes a comprehensive approach engaging students with technology resources. It helps teachers to differentiate instruction, building and reinforcing foundational math skills that translate from the classroom to real life. This curriculum is designed to create in students a love of math and raise student math achievement scores.
 
Advanced math classes are offered in grades 3-5 with our Gifted teacher for students working at an accelerated pace. Our middle school math curriculum is differentiated by offering grade level and honors courses. Honors opportunities include Pre-Algebra in Grade 7 and Algebra I for high school credit in Grade 8. Differentiation for students below grade level may be given through accommodations of content, teaching process, and assessment.
