Math Math in Focus - Grades 1–8

Math in Focus uses the world-renowned Singapore method and is based on Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Math in Focus: Singapore Math textbook. The course emphasizes conceptual understanding, critical thinking, problem solving, and skills fluency. Your child will focus on fewer concepts that are taught to mastery, thereby eliminating the need to reteach concepts year after year. Math Kit for Grades 4–6 containing course related supplies sold separately. Grade 1 – Students study two- and three-digit numbers, addition and subtraction with and without regrouping, skip counting, measurements, telling time, and graphs. Grade 2 – Students perform complex addition and subtraction and are introduced to multiplication and division. They work with numbers up to a thousand, manipulate and measure geometric figures, develop skills with money and measurement, and represent data. Grade 3 – Students use problem-solving and visual representations to add and subtract with and without regrouping, develop skills in fractions, multiply, divide with and without regrouping, work with metric and customary measurements, and calculate area and perimeter of two-dimensional shapes. Grade 4 – Students use visual representations to interpret data, create tables and graphs, add and subtract like and unlike fractions and mixed numbers, express decimals as fractions and mixed numbers, measure angles, and find area and perimeter. Grade 5 – Students use problem solving and visual representations to multiply and divide fractions, simplify algebraic expressions, represent ratios in fraction form, multiply and divide decimals, and classify polygons. Grade 6 – Students draw on problem-solving skills and prior knowledge to develop an understanding of ratios and proportions, summarize data distributions, compare numbers with percents and ratios, write and evaluate algebraic expressions, and express and compute rates. Grade 7 – Students develop a strong conceptual understanding of proportional relationships, addition and subtraction of integers, perform operations with rational and irrational numbers, simplify algebraic expressions, approximate probability and relative frequency, and construct different geometric figures. Grade 8 – Students develop a deep understanding of algebra through statistical applications and representing and comparing functions. Students will also add and subtract using scientific notation, use exponential notation, graph linear equations, analyze data, and apply geometric transformations.

Calvert Test Series – Available for Both Math in Focus and Calvert Math. Call for pricing and details. The Calvert Test Series (CTS) offers Home Teachers a complete set of tests with answer keys. With this testing option, parents check their children’s work and maintain their own records of student achievement. The Calvert Test Series uses matching, fill-in-the-blank, true or false, and multiple-choice questions to assess content mastery.

All courses $349 each. Call (855) 346-6311 to order.

Grade 7 – Students are introduced to advanced topics such as exponents, scientific notation, inequalities, constructions, volume, and surface area, as well as prerequisite algebra concepts. Grade 8 – Students learn problem solving, algebra, scientific notation, rational and irrational numbers, and graphing functions.

Algebra I

This Algebra Course will help students prepare to enter high school at a higher math level. This course does not qualify for High School credit. See the High School Course Guide for courses. Our Lesson Manual contains detailed instructions and easy-to-follow examples. Although parents remain involved, the Lesson Manual is written to the student. Our solutions manual provides step-by-step answers to textbook problems. Also included are lessons to teach the use of graphing calculators and a download for an easy-to-use computer program that replaces expensive graphing calculators.
