Lesson Types

In Semesters 1 and 2 of the curriculum, you will see these types of lessons - more than once a session in some cases:

1.  Quantity

With lessons on quantity, you can help your child understand the reality of numbers (instead of just the symbols - 1, 2, etc. - that represent them). This will give your child a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts.
