Grades Five through Eight
Chapin’s mathematics program is based on the premise that all students can and need to learn, master and apply mathematical concepts. We recognize that mathematics plays an important role in developing the ability to organize and analyze information; to think critically; to generalize and apply concepts; and to solve problems. Chapin’s mathematics program seeks to equip students with the skills necessary to meet personal ambitions and career goals in an ever-changing, information-based and technologically rich global society. To that end, Chapin teaches both computation and concepts by emphasizing their application in problem solving contexts.
Grades six through eight progress to Pre-Algebra, Introduction to Geometry and Algebra, Algebra I and Geometry.
