Why is my child in Intensive Math?
Your child has been placed in Intensive Math because he/she did not receive a passing score on the FCAT or has been recommended by a previous teacher. This “double dose” of Math will help your child by reinforcing those skills being taught in their regular math class. Students experience each math concepts two times a day by two different teachers.

The amount of home learning is carefully considered.

Students are responsible for knowing their basic multiplication facts and be able to do basic mental math. Students should practice this skill daily until they have perfected it. We can not spend class time on this!
