Using the Singapore math method that focuses on mastery through the gradual sequencing of concepts, students will learn to think mathematically, not simply memorization and replication. The goal is to instill a curiosity to further explore math, with different levels of problem solving and real world applications of math topics. Using the Dimensions Math Textbooks to introduce concepts, the weekly lessons will encourage discussion and help students understand the strategies for mathematical problem solving. Corresponding exercises in workbooks will be assigned to reinforce and practice new knowledge.
