The Creative Curriculum includes many math concepts in its activities.  Teachers are encouraged to expand upon their children’s interests to facilitate mathematics learning. The curriculum is designed to help teachers incorporate mathematics learning into daily classroom routines. Centers and activities are set up to improve children’s math understanding and application.  Concepts such as cardinality, quantity, counting, and patterns are emphasized.

The STAR Autism Program helps our learners with autism develop the requisite academic skills for them to access math concepts in later years.  These skills are typically targeted in small instructional settings to ensure that the children progress consistently through the program.

At Brooklyn Blue Feather Elementary and Staten Island Prep, teachers primarily utilize McGraw-Hill’s MyMath curriculum, a general education system widely used across the country for math instruction.   An appropriate differentiation for the learners is stressed.  Math instruction occurs on a daily basis in every classroom and fulfills the state standards for instructional hours in this subject.

AHRC Middle/High School uses a variety of curricula, including MyMath, Glencoe Math, and other general education tools.  Depending on the learning needs of the students, teachers reference a range of curricula to create the individualized programming necessary.  Independence is always the goal.  Students participate in math instruction every day. Whenever possible, teachers introduce math concepts within their natural environments to facilitate the generalization.  Examples include teaching money management skills in the context of purchasing preferred items from the store.
