The course will address even and odd numbers, rounding, telling time in five-minute increments, counting money, adding and subtracting double- and triple-digit numbers, and solving word problems. Students will gain a deeper understanding of place value and problem-solving,
and will work with equal groups to gain foundations
for multiplication. The concepts taught in this class will assist students in acquiring the mathematical foundation needed for the next grade level.
MATH PREPARATION – GRADE 3 (2 hours) ★ Entering Grade 3 – This course is designed to teach
the main strands of third-grade math with a focus on operations and algebraic thinking, place value, fractions, measurement and data as well as geometry. The instructor will address multiplication and division facts, patterns and properties, area and perimeter, sorting triangles and quadrilaterals, adding and subtracting decimals, money, and solving word problems. Students will have the opportunity to develop an advanced repertoire of skills and strategies in an environment
that encourages critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity. The concepts taught
in this class will assist students in acquiring the mathematical foundation needed for the next grade level.
MATH PREPARATION – GRADE 4 ★
Entering Grade 4 – This class will introduce students to themes and concepts of algebra, geometry and statistics. Students will use hands-on applications and problem-solving exercises designed to promote
conceptual understanding and enhance logical thinking skills. Additional topics include place value, rounding, estimating, identifying prime and composite numbers as well as prime factoring. Through complex problem- solving, students will practice fundamentals of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
