6th Small Group Math

Course Title: 6th Grade Small Group Math

Description of Course

Small group math is designed for students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) who have specific goals in the area of math. Each lesson is uniquely designed to meet the individual learner’s needs in math. The course begins with a pre-assessment to determine areas of strength and need in math. Once these assessments have been completed and reviewed, the curriculum is tailored to the specific student. Students will be assessed frequently to determine areas of growth. Students will have access to a variety of different types of math curriculum including computer-based programs, Glencoe Math, functional math and basic math facts in accordance with grade-level math content standards.
