Our program encourages the development and application of skills to deal with real-life situations. We help students develop confidence and a positive disposition to use math, to explore, to experiment, to tackle problems, to ask questions, to propose and implement strategies, to take risks and to deal with failure. As students progress, they develop mathematical literacy and fluency; they learn to organize their thoughts and their work, to master complex procedures, and to present their work and explain their thinking.
