Welcome to the Math DepartmentTina CrookMath Curriculum Coordinator Grades 6 - 12508-790-6445 x1045The study of mathematics, like the Nile, begins in minuteness but ends in magnificence.-Charles Caleb ColtonA strong foundation in mathematics is essential for students to meet the demands of an ever changing and challenging global society. The math program at Barnstable High School emphasizes problem solving, mathematical reasoning, communication, representation and connections; skills students will need for study beyond high school, for careers, higher education and effective citizenship. The content, instructional materials, and approaches for each course reflect the standards outlined by the 2011 Massachusetts Mathematics Curriculum Frameworks and the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS).While we offer students a comprehensive mathematics curriculum, it is essential that students play an active role in their learning. Essential for success in mathematical study are a strong work ethic, active involvement in class and regular homework completion. Our goal is to help students learn the mathematics that will help them achieve academic success.
