Math

Math Teacher with Student

The Middle School math curriculum is designed to strengthen students basic math skills in preparation for higher level math courses. In addition to focusing on content, the preparation includes helping students to overcome any pre-existing math phobias and to see the real-life value and fun of math. The emphasis is jointly on learning how to “do" math and striving to understand why it's done that way. A solid understanding of the math fundamentals are designed to prepare students for explorations in algebra, geometry, and beyond. Eighth graders have a choice of Pre-Algebra or Algebra I. Students with a passion for mathematics are encouraged to participate in American Math Competitions and Math League Contests.
