On Thursday students will discover their Renaissance Man/Woman that they will research!
The Math Support program assists students with emerging math abilities at each grade level. The goals of the program include building number sense, fostering self confidence, filling any gaps in knowledge, increasing accuracy of computations, and supporting learning in the math classroom. Typically, students receive small group instruction twice a week, focussing on individualized areas of need. As students increase in confidence and competence in their math skills, they graduate from the program with fading support.
