About Our Math Department:
Our math department is made up of highly qualified teachers who strive for excellence in all areas of academics. We use real life scenarios to bring math to a level the students can relate to. We will stress students learn the vocabulary and basic math facts and practice the new math as they learn it so they can learn to think through any problem life can throw at them - numbers or not... Let's build bigger brains together and achieve our department's, as well as our school's goals!
Students and Parents:
Check out our videos and links to sites to improve in areas students are weak in or to get stronger in other math areas. Students can get username and passwords for certain sites (like ThinkThroughMath.com) from their math teachers.
The West Orange-Stark Middle School Math Department received a STAR distinction for Academic Achievement in Mathematics for the 2013-2014 school year. This is one of the FIVE STARS of DISTINCTION our school earned in that year. We also received star distinctions in Academic Achievement in Reading / ELA, Academic Achievement in Social Studies, Top 25 Percent Student Progress, and Top 25 Percent Closing Performance Gaps. Our goal in the mathematics department is to maintain the rating and improve even further.
