Mathematics

The teaching of mathematics begins in the first grade with the four arithmetical processes and continues through algebra and solid geometry in eighth grade. In addition, the abstract principles of mathematics are infused into many other aspects of the curriculum. In the early years, jumping rope is a venue for learning to count. Playing the recorder teaches the concept of intervals. Proportion and scale are studies partly through geometric drawing and woodworking. Clay modeling offers an opportunity to sculpt Platonic solids. This multi-disciplinary, and often initially tactile, approach resonates with children and leads to an in-depth understanding of mathematical principles.
