About US
Welcome to Team

4th Grade Academics

This is our 3rd year using the newest edition of Everyday Mathematics - it is much more rigorous!

Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Number and Operations in Base Ten, Number and Operations - Fractions, Measurement and Data, and Geometry.
Multiple methods and strategies for problem solving

Student Reference Book

This is not your typical curriculum (arithmetic driven, slow paced, isolated instruction). This is a very rich curriculum where students are capable of learning higher level problem solving solutions!! Mathematics is meaningful to children when it is varied, rich and rooted in real-world problems and application.
