Cedar Hill Prep School’s Math curriculum is based on the recommendations of the National Mathematics Panel Report. CHP uses the Primary Math Standards Edition for Grades 1-5. Primary mathematics uses a concrete – pictorial – abstract approach, and emphasizes mental math and model drawing. The rigorous curriculum is designed to offer density of mathematical content in a clear, logical progression that provides for a balance of content and ample opportunity to support the development and application of skills and problem solving strategies.
