Utilizing multisensory methods, teachers at Jemicy spend one period each day working with students to develop their understanding of basic mathematics and build foundational skills that can be applied to daily living. Students apply material covered in class to practical uses, in-depth investigation, and math projects.
Jemicy lower school math teachers assess a student’s level and teach from that point, providing needs-focused instruction relating to each math topic. Students are grouped by ability, each moving forward at the right pace with the goal of making the most academic progress possible without causing stress or anxiety. If a student doesn't master a concept, it is re-taught before s/he moves on.
