The objectives in Middle School mathematics are the maintenance, expansion, and refinement of arithmetic skills; the acquisition of a comprehensive mathematical vocabulary, including terminology and symbolism; an acquaintance with problem-solving techniques necessary for success in the study of algebra; and the enhancement of pattern recognition, number sense, and the recognition of relationships. An experiment-based, interdisciplinary math/science project is conducted during the year, leading to the Middle School Math/Science night when projects are exhibited to students, faculty and parents.
