Mathematics

At AGCS it is our goal to create strong mathematical problem solvers  who have the knowledge to manipulate numbers and understand mathematical relationships. In K-2 this goal is addressed through hands-on, real world experiences using Math in Focus. Math in Focus uses the Singapore approach to math instruction by focusing on the concrete-pictorial-abstract learning progression. In grades 3-6 Pearson GO Math! is the core component of mathematics instruction. Go Math lends itself to differentiated instruction and a strong alignment to the PA Core Standards. All grades K-6 utilize differentiated small group instruction that helps teacher to meet each student at his or her own level.  K-6 students also have access to a web-based math fluency program, Reflex Math, that encourages over learning  of basic math facts in an effort to establish automaticity in computation.
