The following curriculum links have been organized according to grade levels. Choose the level of curriculum that meets your child’s needs for each subject area. There are links to placement tests where applicable.

Your Educational Specialist will be able to help guide you in your curriculum selection.

Math Mammoth

Focuses on the understanding of mathematical concepts. Uses clear explanations, lots of visual exercises and pattern exercises. Mastery oriented: concentrates fairly long on a topic, with fairly few topics per grade.Emphasizes mental math and developing number sense. Very little teacher preparation needed.

Math - U - See

Math-U-See combines hands-on methodology with incremental instruction and continual review in this manipulative-based program. It excels in its hands-on presentation of math concepts that enables students to understand how math works. It is one of the rare multisensory math programs that continues to use manipulatives up through Algebra 1.

Singapore Math

Singapore math is a teaching method based on the national mathematics curriculum used for kindergarten through sixth grade in Singapore. The term was coined in the United States to describe an approach originally developed in Singapore to teach students to learn and master fewer mathematical concepts at greater detail as well as having them learn these concepts using a three-step learning process: concrete, pictorial, and abstract. In the concrete step, students engage in hands-on learning experiences using concrete objects such as chips, dice, or paper clips. This is followed by drawing pictorial representations of mathematical concepts. Students then solve mathematical problems in an abstract way by using numbers and symbols.

Mathematical Reasoning

Mathematical Reasoning™ books help students devise strategies to solve a wide variety of math problems. These highly effective activities use step-by-step, discussion-based problem-solving and computation to build the math reasoning skills necessary for success in higher-level math and math assessments. This book is written to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Activities and units spiral slowly, allowing students to become comfortable with concepts but also challenging them to continue building their math skills.

Teaching Textbooks

Early primary-grade math lays the framework for all later mathematical skills and is also vitally important for everyday life. Ensure that your students understand every aspect of adding and subtracting multiple numbers, writing fractions, carrying, multiplication, money, telling time, advanced place value, mental multiplication, whole numbers, decimals, perimeter, area, temperature, the metric system, and bar & line graphs with Teaching Textbooks 3. The workbook contains all the problem and practice sets, as well as written summaries of each lecture; the summaries conveniently allow children to skim over the text instead of re-watching the lecture if they forget a key point.

Saxon Math
Course 1

Saxon Math Course 1 is for 6th grade. the text is no-nonsense but attractive in a clean-cut way. An accent color helps illustrate concepts and provides some organizational structure. There are 120 daily Lessons plus 12 Investigations (practical application) in each course. Groups of ten Lessons and one Investigation are wrapped into a Section, each of which has a particular focus and includes particular mathematical strands. Daily Lessons follow a pattern that will be familiar to Saxon users. A Power Up (Building Power) section reviews math facts and provides mental math problems as well as a problem solving dilemma (i.e. problem). The New Concept (Increasing Knowledge) segment provides instruction (written directly to the student), worked examples and a short Practice Set for reinforcing what has just been learned. Written Practice (Strengthening Concepts) is a longer set of problems that reviews and continues practice on concepts cumulative from the start of the book.Early Finishers (not included with every lesson) are a few real-world application problems available to students who complete the assignment early.

ALEKS Math

ALEKS (Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces) is a research-based, web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning online math program for grades 3-12. ALEKS provides the advantages of one-on-one instruction and is accessible from virtually any computer with Internet access. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to adjust the learning modules presented. A placement assessment is used to determine a student’s knowledge in a course, and periodic reassessments help ensure knowledge retention. ALEKS is web-based and accessible on both Windows and Mac systems. ALEKS is a division of McGraw-Hill Education.

Illustrative Math

Illustrative Math K–5 sparks student engagement and fosters conceptual understanding of the underlying mathematics principles. IM K–5 Math sparks student engagement and fosters conceptual understanding of the underlying mathematics principles. Students use mathematics to make mathematical connections and develop conceptual understanding. Students enjoy mathematics while they discuss and defend their reasoning.

Above all else, we love kids. Their individuality, their abilities, their passions. Children are amazing people and we consider ourselves lucky to work with them everyday.
