In Yamagata Prefecture, we have introduced the "Sansan Plan" (organizing the number of classes to about 33) to promote the formation of small-group mathematics classes in elementary schools, so small-group mathematics classes are also held in elementary schools in Yamagata City. There are many. While this brings many benefits, problems such as heavy financial burden and lack of classrooms due to the increase in the number of classes have surfaced. Especially in Yamagata City, in areas where urbanization has progressed rapidly, and in schools where there is a serious shortage of classrooms such as large schools with a large number of children, the number of temporary school buildings on the ground is rapidly increasing, and spaces such as multipurpose classrooms are used as classrooms. We are taking measures such as using it. This measure was also introduced in junior high school.
