At Wildwood Community School, we desire to show your children the Truth, Beauty, and Goodness in the world; and very little is as true, beautiful, and good as Mathematics. We have six weekly units that explore the many facets of math. One half of those units are with our main curriculum that covers arithmetic, algebra, geometry, advanced algebra, precalculus, and calculus respectively. One third is with supplements that inspire joy; aspects woefully underrepresented in common curriculum. The final unit has paper sloyd, free reading, and Euclid respectively. We aim to keep Charlotte Mason’s principles in mind in our teaching methods, going at each child's pace and we learn each tool before we move on by making sure that the requisite number facts are fully memorized or mastered.
