Cycle Two (1st-5th Grade)

Instruction in mathematics helps students develop an aptitude for research and reasoning. Research opportunities encourage students to experiment with problem-solving strategies and provide them with new ideas and skills.

  • Knowledge of numbers up to 1,000
  • Understanding of place value (ones, tens, hundreds)
  • Understanding of numbers in their numeric and written form (3 and three)
  • Understanding of relationships between numbers such as doubles and halves
  • Develop mental arithmetic procedures: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
  • Master the technique of addition and subtraction with and without carrying
  • Learn and practice mental calculation techniques.
  • Learn to develop different strategies to solve problems.
  • Recognize, describe, and reproduce simple solids and geometrical shapes including squares, rectangles, triangles, and other polygons
  • Use the calendar and calculate duration of time
  • Use common units of the metric system

Cycle Three (4th-5th Grade)

Problem-solving is essential to the mastery of mathematics. The ability to search, think in abstract ways, and prove allows students to establish connections between previously acquired and new concepts.

  • Adopt an appropriate strategy to solve a problem
  • Implement the strategy logically
  • Communicate the strategy
  • Discuss the validity of the solution
  • Order whole numbers
  • Establish arithmetical relationships between numbers
  • Operate techniques for subtraction, multiplication, and Euclidian division
  • Write a decimal number and its fractional equivalent and vice versa
  • Solve problems involving addition and subtraction, multiplication and division of a decimal by an integer, and a decimal division of two integers
  • Reproduce, describe (using the appropriate vocabulary), represent, and construct common geometrical objects
  • Perform actions on plane figures: perfecting reproduction, construction, and transformation techniques (axial symmetry, enlargement, reduction)
  • Measure different quantities: length, mass, duration, area, and volume (using the metric and the U.S. customary system)
  • Make predictions using experimental probability
  • Collect and analyze data
