我们有最好的课程

我们的数学课程于2019年春季与San Pascual STEAM Magnet(SPSM)的工作人员合作开发。该方法以数学为第二语言的学习方式,向学生介绍了表达式和方程式。

3到5年级的SPSM学生在十二周的时间内每天使用新课程学习一小时。然后他们参加了国家标准化测试。结果是惊人的:该校成为整个洛杉矶学区进步最大的公立学校。

年份SBAC测试达到或超过要求 3至5年级
201626%
201726%
201828%
201950% (实施新课程)

次年,该课程被南洛杉矶的Estrella小学采用并更新。十二名三年级至五年级的老师发现,通过使用该教程,大量学生能熟练掌握代数知识并积极参与解题过程。一位老师说:“学生们午间休息都不想出去玩。” “他们想一直学习数学和解题。”

天空暑期学校的数学课程主题:

  • 什么是变量?
  • 正数和负数
  • 包括括号在内的表达式
  • 用文字表达数学
  • 文字题目的数学表示方式
  • 数字交换,关联和分配的原则
  • 单步和多步骤解题方程式
  • 文字题和数学等式
  • 有关算术和几何序列的文字题目

通过学习,学生能独立解题的类型如下:

简化:
X + X + 5 – X – 3 – 5
简化:
2 + 2 * (2 + (1 + 2) * 2))
解法X:
5 * 4 – X = 5 * 2 + 3
解法Y:
10 + 9 * Y = (4 + 4) * (5 + 3)
数学文字题:
Jasmine had a goldfish that produced money, depending on what it ate: peanuts (2 coins), chips (3 coins), or bananas (X coins). The goldfish ate 2 peanuts, 3 chips, and 4 bananas, and produced 33 coins. Write an equation for X, and solve for X.
数学文字题:
Monica and Melanie are raising racing chickens. Monica has 10 chickens, and every day, another one joins his flock. Melanie has 40 chickens, and every day, two get eaten by foxes. How many days does it take until Monica and Melanie have the same number of chickens?

我们的写作课程基于Hochman(霍奇曼博士)编著的写作教案,这套明确,系统的写作课程,详细说明了如何写完整的句子,清晰的段落和完美的论文。 有关霍奇曼博士写作课程的新闻报道:

丰富的科目知识是良好写作的基础。我们的学生在课堂中会参与大量的有关科学,历史和文学课程的阅读。2020年春季我们和San Pascual STEAM Magnet的学生一起测试了这个写作教案,学生们的写作能力都得到了大幅提高。

天空暑期学校写作课程主题如下:

  • 完整的句子与片段;
  • 修改不必要的连续句;
  • 准确使用不同句型,练习提出问题;
  • 连词(例如:和、但是、如此、因为);
  • 从属连词(例如:之前、是否、何时、尽管);
  • 句子组合构成;
  • 通过不同的问题询问扩展写作;
  • 练习写好笔记;
  • 把笔记转换成完整的句子;
