Overview of the Mathematics Department
The Mathematics Department emphasizes depth of understanding and application of knowledge at the appropriate development levels. We offer Learning Center, Title One, Inclusion, Pathways, Honors, and Advanced Placement courses. Learning Center and Title One classes support students who need remediation or additional assistance to transition in a vertical fashion to inclusion and pathways if their skills allow. Honors and AP courses offer rigorous and faster paced curricula.
The Mathematics Curriculum prepares students for the worlds of career or college after graduation. Students apply their knowledge in a creative manner while developing inquiry and problem-solving skills through the use of technology and various instructional methodologies. The department continuously assesses whole-school and individual student progress in achieving the school’s learning expectations and alignment with the Massachusetts State Frameworks for Mathematics.
