     This class works to improve basic functional math skills. The students practice number recognition, counting, calendar, clock, recognizing coins and their values, matching skills, basic adding and subtracting. The main curriculum to be used this year will be Saxon Math.

     The goal of this class is to teach each student the functional math skills that he or she will need to successfully apply math skills in their daily routines. For example, can a student use the calendar to read the correct date or locate the date of an upcoming special event or appointment? Can the student see the number 15 and count fifteen items that match the number? Can the student read the clock to follow the school schedule, know what time to get up for school, go to bed or when a favorite TV show comes on?
