We’ll be loosely following the Singapore Math curriculum – if you’re interested in following the curriculum, please take a placement test so we can make sure to have the right materials! (http://www.singaporemath.com/Placement_Test_s/86.htm) In addition to that, we’ll be doing a lot of playful math! Board games, logic puzzles, basic programming, and more. Class time will be a combination of one-on-one, group work, and independent study.
“What we do” will be tailored pretty closely to who’s in the room, and what kind of help they need. Knowing that everyone is starting at different places, the goal is to create a fun, relaxed environment where everyone can work on things at their own pace — whatever pace that may be! (taught by some combination of the four of us)
