To succeed in higher-level mathematics, students must develop math fluency – the ability to automatically retrieve facts and perform essential calculations. Once they feel confident in their own mastery of math fundamentals, students begin to experiment, take risks, and make new conceptual connections.
RRLS early math classes are designed to engage students as they develop math fluency in a supportive environment. Abstract concepts are made concrete with engaging activities, manipulatives, and exploratory play. By the end of each program, students will feel proud of the independence they have gained.
