Our core curriculum for math will be Math in Focus:  Singapore Math.

FROM THE MATH IN FOCUS WEBSITE:  Mathematicians are problem solvers first. When children can't find the meaning in numbers and symbols, problem solving is a struggle. Math in Focus®: Singapore Math® by Marshall Cavendish® © 2020 helps students learn the language of math. Through hands-on learning, visualization, and pictorial representations, their understanding, confidence, and love of math grows.

Math in Focus, the U.S edition of the highly effective Singapore Math® curriculum, delivers the program's most extensive revisions since its release. Aligned to match the shifts in Singapore's curriculum and offer teachers and students an unparelleled digital experience, Math in Focus ensures teachers and students approach each math lesson with the enthusiasm and confidence that's proven to yield success.
