Do you have a motivated grade 5 math student who would thrive in an accelerated math course? Is your student ready to gain a deeper understanding of mathematical thinking and processes? The goal of this course is to develop student’s mathematical problem solving skills both in practical and abstract concepts and to prepare students for higher level mathematics and science courses. The well-proven Singapore Math curriculum used in this course presents concepts in a way that moves from concrete to pictorial to symbolic. Students are expected to have already mastered basic math skills, which become the foundation for learning conceptual math through word and picture problems. Concepts covered include: mental math; prime factorization; order of operations; word problems involving addition/subtraction/multiplication/division of whole numbers, decimals, and fractions; modeling; perimeter/area/surface area; combining three quantities of ratios and making equivalent ratios; converting measurements and volume: percentages; constructing triangles and finding the sum of the angles of a quadrilateral; and data analysis.

Shawna B

“We have loved the Math Accelerated program for our younger students. The classes are engaging, fun and move at a great pace to help the kids remain focused. My daughter went from hating math to loving math during her year in Math Accelerated 6. Problems went from being a struggle to being a fun puzzle to work out. Having had such a good experience with the program, we put our youngest in Math Accelerated 4. He also had a great experience, looks forward to class and has made great strides in his mathematical understanding.”
