The focus of the Mathematics Department is to allow all students to acquire a foundation in mathematics that will serve them well in their continuing education beyond Hoosac School.
Great care is taken to ensure that a new student is enrolled in the appropriate math course based on their ability and proficiency and not solely on age or grade level. Part of the initial assessment is through the utilization of IXL. But, should a course prove to be too challenging or not demanding enough there is flexibility in the Mathematics Department to allow for a change.
Students are encouraged to think logically and develop sound reasoning techniques. Within the course structure there is an emphasis on problem-solving strategies that will be useful to all students in other areas of life. The Mathematics program at Hoosac strives to stimulate and foster mathematical skills in a way that meets the varied needs of all our students.
