Our ‘Nifty Numbers’ Math Program encompasses fun, interactive techniques through our small-group classes. All of our certified teachers utilize a multi-sensory approach that keeps students actively engaged throughout each 60 minute class.
Each small group class has no more than seven children, which is optimal for individual attention and guidance from our teachers.
Our math program, as a whole, focuses on mathematical concepts along with student interaction through problem solving tasks. Students in our math program get the chance to use modern technology by writing and illustrating their own problem-solving book in our patent-pending build-a-book app which we then print out and give to our students to keep.
Whether it be adding and subtracting, vocabulary, mastering multiplication and division, or even dealing with fractions and decimals, we are confident that we have a math program built for every child’s needs!
In Explorers, our students investigate numbers 0-20, building fact fluency around addition and subtraction. Along with exploring these numbers, students also dive into number strategies and mathematical vocabulary which better equips them for solving word problems. Our Explorers class puts an emphasis on telling time and investigations with money, both of which help lead to real world application. We EXPLORE basic levels of geometry, such as shape identification which helps students recognize, and make sense, of shapes in the world around them.
In Navigators, students learn to fluently add and subtract multi-digit numbers. Students navigate multiplication and division by using strategies and models to manipulate groups of objects and determine a connection to numbers and the relationship to the world around them. Problem solving in the Navigators program includes multi-step word problems across all four operations. Navigators students investigate area and perimeter, fractions, time, and money through hands-on activities. The activity based learning approach in this specific program helps learners to create a fun and interactive environment.
In Engineers, students dive into properties of numbers, as well as, mathematical fluency across all four operations. Students engage in multi-digit multiplication and division and the relationship between fractions and decimals. Engineers students learn to add and subtract fractions and decimals and experience hands-on investigation into converting measurements. Our Engineers program investigate angles, order of operations, equivalent fractions, and the relationship between shapes and their attributes. Engineers programming engages students in a hands-on, activity based, instructional style that reflects the use of math in daily life.
