MS Mathematics

Mathematic instruction in the higher grade levels builds upon the hands-on approach of the K through 3rd program. The focus shifts to more abstract concepts and problem solving. Major concepts are presented and practiced as easily understood sub-skills; they are practiced and reviewed throughout the year. Class time is focused on providing opportunities for students to work productively on problems, receiving support as appropriate. At times, it becomes evident that focusing on one concept at a time is more beneficial for some students. Adaptations, different methods of instruction, and alternate programs are then incorporated based on each student’s level of need. The JUMP math curriculum continues through grade 8, becoming more complex and abstract as topics are mastered. The JUMP math curriculum encourages mastery through discovery and critical thinking allowing students to develop deeper level thinking and build confidence.
