Math

Students will work in small groups and individually on a variety of activities involving multiple concepts. Please see your child’s agenda for daily lessons. This information is written on the whiteboard in class, and students are expected to write this information in their agendas.

 

Students will be placed in groups based on pretest scores, including but not limited to the MAP math test and topic tests. Your child’s group and math teacher may fluctuate throughout the year based on your child’s knowledge and understanding of each math concept covered.
