Math  

It all adds up to their success…

 

A math program that not only concentrates on competency, but also stresses problem solving, is found here at Hebrew Academy. The mathematic curriculum is a spiraling program and is key to reinforcement and ultimate mastery. Our students learn fundamental concepts using manipulatives and hands-on activities and are given opportunities to think for themselves. They work independently, with partners, in small groups and large groups to develop confidence in their ability to investigate their choice in a safe environment.  The curriculum provides a comprehensive range of reasoning, number sense, computation, and estimation skills.  Measurement, interpretation of data, and patterns are studied at every grade level. Calculators and computers are utilized to enhance the learning process in a meaningful way.  Repeated exposure to concepts and skills is important for reinforcement and ultimate mastery.  Students learn how to use mathematical thinking in an atmosphere that promotes creativity and individuality. Our program is committed to promoting math as a useful tool and aims to help students make connections to everyday life.
