Class Summary: Having to repeat a process over and over again can quickly become a bore to some children. Elementary Math is a multi-step process to solving problems, and being able to master it takes a lot of practice. The objective of this class will be to find ways to make the process easier. The class will commence with an assessment test to help determine where we need to begin this new academic year. Then, we will:
1. teach why
2. repeat and review
3. talk it out
4. show, don’t tell
5. utilize peer guidance
6. employ practical application

Orientation: A basic syllabus/outline will be given to parents outlining supplies and courses to download or access from

Length of Class: Two semesters (Sept 1-May 10)
Days: One day per week: FRIDAYS

Note from Melissa Castle: I want to invite you to the Divide and Conquer Math classroom at Parker’s Chapel Church. I would love the opportunity to reinforce math skills in your 3rd-5th grade child. We will explore math through hands-on teaching, assessments, and practical application. I hope to encourage and help your child develop a love for math at an early age.
