Enhanced Mathematics Program
Online Tools to Support, Enhance, and Extend Mathematics Achievement
Students in grades K-4 experience math in multisensory ways, increasing engagement and enjoyment in learning math concepts. Using the online TouchMath program, students receive immediate feedback with audio and visual reinforcement that supports all types of learners. Designed specifically to produce results among students of all learning styles, the program ensures that students see, say, hear, touch, and learn using interactive classroom aids, manipulatives, and simulations. This program supplements the St. Charles classroom curriculum and further differentiates instruction to reinforce critical math concepts.
Using St. Charles digital tools, students in grades 5-8 have new opportunities to apply and expand their mathematics learning through the online ALEKS program, which differentiates instruction and provides an optimal path to success for each student. This program supports teachers with ongoing assessment of student progress and personalized instruction that fosters student learning for mastery and retention. Students benefit from immediate feedback and step-by-step explanations to ensure full understanding and application of the Common Core Standards.
After-School Math Lab
St. Charles School employs a team of three teachers specializing in math instruction whose talents are expressed during daily classroom instruction and extended to after-school personalized practice and extension. Smaller, split math classes in grades 5-8 increase opportunities for teachers to reach all students and foster increased student participation. The St. Charles after-school Math Lab program gives students a unique environment in which to communicate, practice, and master mathematics concepts with support from teachers who specialize in math.
