The teachers in our math department are diligently working on implementing new Power Standards created during this past summer. These standards help to bring forth the critical skills required in our curriculum.
In addition to these standards, teachers are spending time to review past curriculum standards in preparation for the 163 students in our Junior class to take the New England Common Assessment in mid October. We have the goal to remain above the NH State average and improve the percentage of students scoring proficient or above.
Learning mathematics is no longer just answer the question - put the square peg in the square hole. The process through which the answer is derived needs to be clearly demonstrated/explained such as: a square has 4 equal sides and therefore it may be placed in the hole with four equal sides not the the one having two long and two short sides. We know this seems simplistic, but as a school we need to continue to develop individuals with critical thinking skills to help them be successful after high school.
Teachers are available most days beyond our regular school hours to assist our students an help them successfully demonstrate competence in the area of mathematics. Please contact us if you have any questions. Phone: 835-6318
Together, we may provide our students with a quality education, equal opportunity, and the acquisition of knowledge and skills that will prepare each student to become healthy, active and productive citizens.
