Math is integrated throughout the day and across the curriculum. The Chicago Everyday Mathematics Program is based on repeated exposure of concepts. New ideas and concepts are introduced and integrated into children's everyday learning experiences. Each strand (topic) is designed as a spiral that begins at a simple level and grows with the child's experience. The spiral ensures repeated exposure to key mathematical concepts. The students learn through hands-on experiences, math activities, games and learning centers.
A variety of topics are explored: patterning & reasoning, number sense, problem solving, estimating, graphing, place value, geometry, symmetry, collecting & recording data, and measurement. All math activities are aligned to the Common Core Standards. A variety of topics are explored: Counting & Cardinality, Operations & Algebraic Thinking, Number & Operation in Base 10, Measurement & Data, and Geometry.
