### Goals

Finish the math practice problems in the textbook Mastering First Grade Skills. This textbook is focusing on furthering the students’ understanding of numbers under 100, including some very simple addition and subtraction. Since every student finishes these practice problems at different rates, students who finish earlier will have the chance to work on the optional social science section of the textbook. Our focus is building the students’ capability of completing the practice problems independently.

Challenging Word Problems

The textbooks for this grade focus on complicated additions and subtractions for numbers under 100, as well as simple 2D geometry. We will take advantage of the benefit of our small-size classroom, to build the students’ capability of completing the practice problems independently while helping each and every student with their specific problem areas

Challenging Word Problems

The textbooks for this grade focus on complicated additions and subtractions for numbers under 100, as well as simple multiplication. The students in second grade are very good at solving the practice problems we provide independently. Therefore, we will not only keep encouraging the students to solve the problems on their own, but also focus on strengthening the student’s ability to correct and learn from their mistakes.

Challenging Word Problems

The textbooks for this grade focus on silent calculations, as well as an understanding of units of length, weight, and volume. Students in third grade are very good at solving practice problems and are very well-disciplined. Therefore, this semester we will focus more on the student’s ability to solve word problems, especially understanding the questions, and applying their knowledge to these word problems.

Singapore Math 4B

This textbook focuses on word problems, simple statistics, and 2D geometry. This textbook is relatively hard, therefore most of the time we will go over some examples in class before asking the students to finish the practice problems themselves. We will also cover some of the more difficult questions in class after students made their attempts.
