Grades 3 - 5 Mathematics
St. Vincent Martyr School’s mathematics department believes that our students only fully understand mathematics when they can internalize the language of the discipline. Through applications that allow students to engage in and appreciate varied approaches, our students deepen their problem-solving skills. We emphasize classroom discussion and writing in mathematics so that each student can construct her own understanding of mathematics.
Grouping by ability begins in Grade 4 for Mathematics only. Placement in advanced grade level math is based on grades, standardized test scores, and a placement test. Teacher recommendation also plays a role.
