Math: Here's How We Do It

Math: Here's How We Do It

The first step in our math program is to build what we call "Number Reasoning." In order to do this, we will go back through major concepts and rebuild them so that the kids have a much deeper understanding that will promote stronger reasoning and "number sense." Additionally, the deeper conceptual understanding will build a connection between arithmetic and algebra, providing a strong foundation for algebraic thinking.

Next week we will continue the work we did over these first two days.  We will be looking into the concepts of addition and subtraction, moving through a "deductive lesson" structured to facilitate reasoning from simple representations, to progressively more complex ideas, to the algebraic or abstract representation of the concept....
