- Agamim Classical Academy uses Saxon Mathematics curriculum for grades Kindergarten through Geometry.
From Saxon Math (http://www.hmhco.com/shop/education-curriculum/math/saxon-math):
For over 30 years, Saxon Math has been delivering proven results for students in Grades K-12. The Saxon math curriculum has an incremental structure that distributes content throughout the year. This integrated and connected approach provides deep, long-term mastery of the content and skills….
INCREMENTAL: Students have time to understand and practice the lesson
- Incremental Concepts are taught in small, approachable progressions
DISTRIBUTED: Students have time to practice and master previous concepts
- Distributed Increments are spread throughout the year, building in complexity, so that by the end of the year students have reached deep understanding and fluency
CUMULATIVE: Students are ready for high stakes assessments
- Cumulative Practice and assessments include concepts from the most recent lessons as well as from earlier in the year, ensuring students retain all concepts and can make connections between them
No matter how well students initially learn a concept, if they are not able to retain their learning, connect it to other concepts, and apply it in problem-solving situations, they have not reached mastery. Saxon Math is designed to support the long-term mastery and applications that will make a difference during testing and in students’ future education and careers.
