    New Math 2 Class 2023 fall

     Curiculum

    The class will focus heavily on building up numbers, to the hundreds, and then the thousands, with the concept of 10 hundred making a thousand.  Multiplication and division of facts up to 5 will be covered.  The idea of a fraction, as an equal part of some whole, is introduced, and simple geometric figures are introduced.  Telling time, and units of measurement (length, weight, capacity), are studied, and graphs, simple numerical sequences.  The main stress in this class is learning to take apart a word problem, not just doing the procedure, but figuring out what we need to do – multiply?  divide?  Many word problems on all topics will be done all year.  The concepts of “more” and “less,” are not always easy:  What is the difference between the statements, “2 more than 6 is ______” vs. “6 is _________more than 2.”  This idea will be developed, going into larger numbers as we progress.

    Why do we promote the Singapore math system

    We advocate for the Singapore math system because this math system teaches a model approach (visual representation of the given information) to the solution of the multi-step word problems. In addition to the model approach, it employs many other carefully crafted strategies such as supposition and restate and replace, systematic listing, all targeting the same goal: teach children to think spatially and logically at very early ages.  

    What math resources do we use

     Challenging Word problems series of books, Brain Math volume 1, Beast Academy series of practice books, Unleash Math Olympian in You, beginner’s level. 

    How do we engage students in the process of learning 

     We encourage children to make sense of problems, to persevere in solving them, to reason abstractly and quantitatively, we also engage them in a group discussion and in a critique of the reasoning of others. 

     

    Class title: Math 5

    For 5th graders

    Head Teacher: Ms. Mary Marvin

    Assistant Teacher: Collin Ostertag

                                              

    Schedule:

    Saturdays: 9:30-10:45 am

    Homework Hour: Thursdays 8:00-9:00 pm 

    Start date:  Sep 9th

    We will work with numbers, to the 10,000s, place; multiplication, and division of 3-digit by 2-digit numbers, deepening understanding of fractions, including addition and subtraction of mixed numbers, and multiplication of fractions by fractions and whole numbers; the focus of our winter semester will be decimals and students will learn to multiply decimals by 10, 100 and 100, and do 2-digit multiplications, we will also study the topics of ratio, percentage, angles in a triangle and quadrilateral and units of measurement.  Word problems will be given on all of these topics, both how to do them, and deciding what we need to do. 

          

    Class title: Math 6

    Head Teacher: Mrs. M. Marvin

    Assistant Teacher: Timothy Torubarov

    Schedule:

    Thursdays: 6:00-7:30 pm

    Homework Hour: Mondays, 7:00-8:00 pm

    Start date: Sep 14th                                                                                 

    Curriculum
        Math 6 deepens many topics seen previously - ratios, rates, percentages, distance-rate-time problems.  There are many "layers," to these topics, which kids must master, and not only harder procedures but also serious word problems on all these topics will be given all year.  We will also study the circumference and area of a circle, and more complicated triangles and quadrilaterals.  Math 6 also begins PreAlgebra/Algebra topics such as exponents, distributing, like terms, algebraic substitution, simple equations and inequalities, and Order of Operations with fractions.  All are done at a beginner level. 
    Forming an algebraic expression or equation, from descriptive words will be a topic all year.
    Math 6 is the last "grammar school" year, and has an intensive program to finalize the topics kids have learned to date.
