elementary Mathematics 
ACADEMIC SCHEDULE

Grades 16
These foundational mathematics classes emphasize understanding of concepts through visualization and thinking strategies. Using the Singapore Math methodology, math skills are developed kinesthetically, visually, and then abstractly. Emphasis is placed more on developing a true understanding of mathematics over rote memorization of algorithms. Fostering a positive attitude toward mathematics is an important part of this program. Problem solving skills are the centerpiece of the LV math program. In all of our math courses, these skills are emphasized and taught at all ages. 
Class time emphasizes activities which are well suited to a group setting and professional teacher interactions.

Coursework over each 2 year period may include (but is not limited to) the following:

Topics covered include (but are not limited to): Numbers, Counting, Place Value, Addition, Subtractions, Multiplication, Division, Fractions, Money, Decimals, Customary and Metric Measurement and Measurement Conversions, Estimation, Factors, Multiples, Divisibility, Time, Volume, Mass, Weight, Length, and Time
Elementary Mathematics classes will meet for 75 minutes on Mondays during the 20192020 school year.
