The Sheltered Math curriculum was developed during 2014-2016 and focuses on remediating foundational skills that SIFE with Developing Literacy may need to begin accessing mathematical content typical of a pre-algebra course. This curriculum is focused on teaching students to connect mathematical content to their everyday lives and uses primarily a traditional mini-lesson structure followed by student collaborative work in heterogeneous small groups. This curriculum teaches basic numeracy skills using the four mathematical operations and includes some work with decimals, fractions, and ratios and proportions. This is an especially good curriculum to start with for SIFE who need complete remediation of even basic mathematical skills and concepts. If students need lessons at this level, this curriculum is recommended for the beginning of the year.
