Math 4 A
Math 4A will cover all material of the 4th-grade class in a child’s regular school, including things he must know for the PARCC test at the end of 4th Grade. However, the focus is on problem-solving with topics studied throughout the school year, all done at a deep level. Many multi-step problems will be done in class and assigned for homework. Included are long multiplication and division with 2 and 3-digit numbers, a continuation of fractions, with addition and subtraction with different denominators, and many word problems, introduction to decimals and how they relate to fractions, and further development of geometry, area and perimeter, volume. Along with the rigorous arithmetic program, challenging and exciting Olympiad and contest type problems will be included each week as part of the lesson.
