Grades 3-5: Gifted Math
In grades three, four, and five, students who are identified as gifted in superior cognitive ability and math will receive gifted services in a replacement math class, meeting with the gifted intervention specialist each day for the math period. The gifted intervention specialist is the mathematics teacher of record and will assign the grade.
In third grade replacement math, students will participate in an enriched third grade curriculum.
In fourth grade replacement math, the grade-level curriculums for fourth grade and the first half of fifth grade will be compacted into one year.
Students in fifth grade replacement math will study the second half of the fifth grade curriculum and all of the sixth grade curriculum.
While there are no replacement math classes at the middle school level, students who complete elementary Gifted Math 5B/6 may continue to follow an accelerated math curriculum. This may include Honors Geometry for students who complete Algebra I. For additional information on the options for accelerated math at the middle school level, please see the Mathematics section of the Middle School Program of Studies.
