Class II Math

Department:  Lower School

Class II Math
Class II is the time to solidify a strong foundation of basic addition and subtraction facts. The math curriculum is based on the core objectives of place value to 1,000, addition and subtraction with regrouping, multiplication and division concepts and memorization of the multiplication tables of 0, 1, 2, 5, and 10, and geometry. Students also work with measurement, time, money, and patterning. Problem-solving strategies are taught and practiced regularly. Students work on critical thinking through problem solving, reasoning, and generalization. Enrichment activities coincide with specific math units to connect application of knowledge to real life. Cooperative learning and varied small group interactive activities support the concepts presented. Mathematical ideas are related to other areas of the curriculum so that students acquire broader notions about the interconnectedness to other fields.
