Mathematics

everydaymathOur math curriculum, Everyday Math, was developed by the University of Chicago Math Project as part of a National Science Foundation grant. It is aligned to the national Common Core State Standards. Research shows that children learn best when new topics are presented at a brisk pace, with multiple exposures over time, and with frequent opportunities for review and practice.

Through a combination of hands-on activities in whole class, small group, and independent activities, Everyday Mathematics encourages students to understand why math is important and how they reach their answers, so that they internalize learning. As a result, students find it easier to remember basic skills, to apply what they know in order to solve problems, and to think mathematically.
