Stratford School students increase their understanding of math every day, at every grade level.

In a typical week, fourth graders learn to think about converting units of length in both the U.S. Customary system and the Metric system, easily moving between the two. They study improper fractions, learn how to add and multiply fractions, and discover how to present answers as whole or mixed numbers. Drills, mental math, and problem solving are integral parts of each class, and every week ends with a comprehensive review of new skills and concepts taught and learned.

By focusing on basic, foundational skills, and layering on new, more advanced concepts throughout the school year, each student gains a thorough understanding and working knowledge of the mathematical skills they’ll need for 21st century careers.
