St. Leo School fifth graders use new math methodology

St. Leo School students use
math journals and videos.


When St. Leo School, San Jose, fifth grade teacher Ardina Morallos was prepping her math curriculum last summer, she spent weeks “trying to wrap my brain around the content of the textbook.”
Ultimately, she decided to base her curriculum on a combination of the Common Core standards, the textbook, and the former California State curriculum. She uses math journals and videos for students to view at home when learning new concepts.
This methodology, the “inverted” or “flipped” classroom, enables her to present material via the video, complete with specific problems to solve together, and culminates with

homework students complete on their own.
Morallos also utilizes math journals so that her students can demonstrate their understanding of the concepts via note-taking, and solving word problems with a written explanation of how they arrived at the solution.
When Morallos developed a math survey with a Google doc, feedback from students was positive. Students said they found learning the concepts easier and more effective.
Morallos has discovered that this methodology also allows for differentiated learning within her classroom, so that she and her aide can make sure every student understands the material, she explained.
