Maths is a subject that requires strong foundations for proficiency later on. I agree with posters who say that you shouldn’t really worry about schedules. Every class is different, with different students who learn differently at different pace. Don’t feel pressured because another class is following the prescribed schedule and your students aren’t. You won’t be doing students a favour if they can’t multiply decimals, and a disservice if you assess them when you know they aren’t ready. In reality, it will take as long as it needs to take. If you are behind, then so be it. In the end, if they have strong foundations, it may be easier to introduce new concepts later on, and you will make up the ‘lost’ time. Don’t feel discouraged about classroom management, if it was that easy to master, then teaching would be easy as pie. Don’t be so hard on yourself, trying to be ‘perfect’ is unrealistic, even for teachers who have years of experience behind them.
