Aspen Academy’s Lower School mathematics program enables children to:
- Discover concepts
- Develop an intuitive feeling for mathematics
- Apply established math skills and reasoning to problem solving
Concepts are taught using concrete materials alongside corresponding algorithms. Pictorial representations provide visual images for computation, and the use of manipulative materials helps children to bridge the gap between the concrete and abstract.
Singapore Mathematics is used as our foundational-level curriculum. After being immersed and then graduating from this program, students are typically performing two to three grade levels ahead of the standard American student.
