Online Elementary School Courses (K-4)

Grades K - 1 Prep

This courses uses RSM's unique methodology to work with rising Kindergarten and 1st graders on the development of their abstract thinking and reasoning ability. We spark an early interest in mathematics by exploring numbers and the connections between them, studying geometric shapes, practicing math language development, and developing problem solving skills. This may be taken as a stand-alone summer enrichment course for non-RSM students; strong students continuing with RSM in the fall may have the opportunity to enter the Advanced level.
