Math can be difficult for students who have learning differences because there are two distinct aspects - computation and conceptualization - involved in mathematical processing. Computation is problematic for students with ADHD or dysgraphia because they have difficulty with the details and sequencing of math problems. Students with conceptual math difficulties often have trouble with the language of mathematics.
The Groves approach to math helps students with both types of issues by providing direct, sequential, and multi-sensory instruction. Students learn both the concepts and the processes of mathematical operations. All classes work with applying mathematical principles in problem solving and critical thinking skills involving word problems.
There are three levels of Math classes offered at Groves. Each is described below.

Topics range from the introduction of basic skills involving place value and one-digit addition and subtraction to more advanced double- and triple-digit addition and subtraction involving regrouping. Simple multiplication and division concepts are covered. Depending on class level and need, concepts of time and money are introduced and reviewed.
There are a wide range of topics in Math II. When necessary, review of basic addition and subtraction problems involving borrowing are reviewed as well as simple multiplication and division. Some classes spend significant time with double- and triple-digit multiplication, while others review these concepts and are introduced to and review operations involving fractions, decimals and percents.
Some Math III classes spend significant time reviewing operations involving fractions, decimals, and percents. Other classes focus on pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, and even algebra II concepts depending upon class groupings and need.
