Each Topic includes between 5 and 10 lessons. Each Topic takes about one week to ten days to complete and is typically concluded with a review and assessment activity, the scores of which are shared with parents. The assessments are kept and stored and are a main component of the scores that appear on the end of term report card.

Math practice worksheets based on that day's lesson are given out for homework four times a week.

The Math program this year will be taught by Ms. O'Donnell as part of Medford's mandated Fifth grade 'class switch' for Math and Science.
