Boght Hills School teachers use the Houghton-Mifflin mathematics text series for grades 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 and the New York State Mathematics Standards as basis for teaching instructions. At the elementary level their goal is to have students master the basic concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division as well as application of these skills in problem-solving situations. Students are taught to understand mathematics by communicating and reasoning mathematically, by applying mathematics in real-world settings and by solving problems through the integrated study of number systems, geometry, measurement, probability, data collection and analysis.
Boght Hills School alternate math program is offered at grades 5 and 6 for students who demonstrate a math talent well beyond the enriched classroom curriculum. Although the classroom-taught concepts are reviewed, the pace and topics covered are accelerated. Assessment includes unit tests for each topic, yearly standardized tests, New York State Assessments, and an end-of-the-year assessment which includes core math skills and a long-term novel project. The Alternate Math teachers prepare the students for all of these assessments.
