  Greetings from Allendale Math Specialist Mr. Maffesoli !

 This website is designed to assist upper grade teachers and students at Allendale Elementary in the area of mathematics. The site consists of three primary sections. There is a 4th grade section that lists the GLCEs (Grade Level Content Expectations) created by the state, along with additional resources, including a page regarding Everyday Mathematics in that grade. The second key section of this website features the same elements that were previously mentioned, but which correspond to 5th grade learning. The final major component is a section of links to other websites on the Internet that are useful.   Mr. Maffesoli can be contacted via e-mail at maffesm@melnap.k12.mi.us or by phone at (313) 389-4664, extension 519.
