What is Advanced Math?
This year in the math, the fourth and fifth grade teams and the GEL
program (Gifted and Enhanced Learning) are working together to provide
an advanced math opportunity for those students whose NWEA Math
achievement levels are consistently at the 91% or above and math work in
the classroom demonstrate a need for more advanced content in
This program is an enriched, fast-paced program which compresses our
curriculum’s content standards and provides advanced content
opportunities. Students participating in advanced math will compress the
curriculum of grades 4-6 over two years.
Fourth graders will be using both the fourth and fifth grade math
texts, as students go a bit deeper into the content material, as well as
additional resources from the National Council of Teaching Mathematics.
Fifth graders will be using, both the fifth grade and sixth grade
texts, as well as additional resources from the National Council of
Teaching Mathematics and M3, another advanced math resource.
We are very excited about this opportunity and believe this will
better meet the individual needs of our high achieving math students.
