The mathematics program at Glenn Arbour Academy is challenging and already proven to be successful. Lessons are presented in a structured hands on style. Emphasis is placed on developing a strong foundation for computational skills and problem solving strategies.
The concepts and skills presented are never neglected. Every component of the math program is constantly reinforced. Frequent assessments are used as important valuable diagnostic tools to measure individual progress.
Daily homework sheets reinforce the skills taught during the day, and also require the student to apply previous knowledge and understanding to complete a varied collection of problems. A high level of accuracy is promoted. Each student is encouraged to demonstrate an understanding of the steps involved to arrive at his/ her solution.
