Math

Teacher: Kimmara Griffiths

This class serves as a basic introduction to math and the binary operations.  It has been structured to lay a foundation for students to gain “number sense”. Mrs. Griffiths created this class to assist students in mastering basic operations while using several methods to encourage students to have a fluent understanding of math in the “real world”.
