Accelerated math leads to success

To prepare students to meet the Georgia mathematics standards, Dr. George Washington Carver Elementary School has implemented Accelerated Math, a program that accelerates the learning of mathematics when used in conjunction with their existing instructional practices and their math textbook. Accelerated Math ensures that students are working at an appropriate level, mastering new objectives, and reviewing skills that they have already mastered. With this program, teachers are provided with information that allows them to make informed instructional decisions and tailor math interventions to meet the needs of individual students.
