Building upon the success of long-established, proven methods, the AAA Math EZ™ Program balances mastery of fundamental skills with critical thinking and problem solving. Math EZ™ emphasizes an active, multi-sensory approach to ensure that students understand the concrete realities that underlie mathematical concepts. This is accomplished through this important combination of three basic methods:
- Mastery of different skills through regular practice & review.
- Hands-on life application, scholastic games and other innovative teaching methods that motivate students and help illustrate concepts.
- Challenging problems that help develop critical thinking skills.
Mathmatazz™ – Elementary School Foundation
Mathmatazz is a proven interactive fun Math method to teach younger children, and to increase their appreciation of the subject. This is done through integrated mathematical reasoning, problem solving, applied logics and mathematical games.
- For Kindergarteners: a key to mathematical understanding is making a link between physical models and written symbols.
- For First Graders: Mathmatazz provides a more formal understanding of numbers and mathematical concepts. Physical models still play a fundamental role in linking the real world to symbolic expressions.
- For Second Graders: develop an understanding of mathematical operations, and use their understanding to solve problems and applied mathematical concepts to the world around them.
- For Third Graders: continue to develop computational skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division involving more complex mathematical concepts. Students will start studying the basics of probability.
- For Fourth Graders: sharpen their computational and problem solving skills while applying mathematical concepts to real world problems.
- For Fifth Graders: explore complex mathematical operations and apply concepts to real world problems.
Easing into Algebra
This is a fun class to introduce students to Algebra. In this class, students will compare, compute, and estimate with decimals, fractions and mixed numbers. An incremental approach to mathematics with practice in word problems, fractions, decimals, percents, geometry, perimeter, circumference, area, volume, ratio, proportion, exponents, scientific notation, mean, median, mode, sales tax, solving equations and more. They will learn how to identify fractional parts, use variables to write equations, use substitution to solve equations, inequalities, and algebraic problems; identify relationships in graphs and Venn diagrams; and construct different representation of some algebraic relations.
This course is designed to strengthen students’ arithmetic and problem solving skills. Students learn to read, write and understand the unique language of mathematics, so they’ll be prepared to solve everyday types of problems and assessment situations. Basic operations with whole numbers, factions, decimals, and percents, will be covered in depth, along with measurements, geometry, integers and functions. Utilizing symbols and language necessary to properly calculate & interpret graphs: measure, add, subtract, multiply and divide. Students will develop and organize a systematic approach to solving basic math problems.
Algebra 1 & 2
Basic concepts and properties of Algebra are introduced algebraically, graphically, numerically, and verbally for equation solving. Functions and graphs, polynomials, algebraic functions, fractional equations, linear equations, quadratic equations and inequalities are covered in depth. The symbolic language of mathematics is developed and used in wide varieties of problem solving situations.
Students will be treated to a review of fundamental properties and theorems of Geometry. The emphasis is on the application of concepts and interesting problems rather than on detailed proofs of theoretical propositions. Students will uncover the fundamental properties and theorems of Geometry. Algebra skills are reviewed at the point-of-use, ensuring that students maintain their skills. Students will develop their ability to construct formal and logical arguments in a geometric setting through complex problems.
Algebra 3 & 4
Students will increase their facility with Algebra and Geometry. They will gain experience with algebraic solutions of problems in various areas, including the solutions systems of quadratic equations, polynomials, absolute value, properties and functions of real & complex sets, sequences and series, logarithmic and exponential functions, the binomial theorem, and the complex number system. In addition, students study trigonometry, complex numbers, inequalities, matrices, conic sections, and systems of equations.
This course provides a thorough study of relationships and functions. Students will solve problems algebraically and graphically with emphasis on applications. Emphasis is placed on polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, and rational functions. Parametric, conic, and polar equations are studied along with analytic trigonometry and applications. A key concept, the Limits theorem is introduced. This course combines many of the trigonometric, geometric, and algebraic techniques needed to prepare students for the study of calculus as well as strengthen their conceptual understanding of problems and mathematical reasoning in problem solving.
Calculus is a widely applied area of mathematics and involves a beautiful intrinsic theory. Students understand and compute the radius of the convergence of power series, differentials integration of the terms of a power series, Taylor polynomials, and the series of basic graphical functions. Students practice the techniques of solution of differential equations and their applications to a wide variety of situations, including growth-and-decay problems.
“Challenging Problems help develop Critical Thinking Skills, while focused Practice & Review ensure Mastery of Basic Concepts”
Probability & Statistics
An introduction to the study of probability, interpretation of data, and fundamental statistical problem solving. This course covers the themes of exploring data, planning a study, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. Emphasis is placed on probability, data collection, correlation, regression, contingency tables, random variables, and summary statistics. Normal distribution, binomial distribution, and exponential distribution are discussed and practiced for solving problems.
