Mathematics Department Head
The Stratford High School Mathematics Department is dedicated to providing students with classroom experiences that promote independent mathematical thinking. Our curriculum is designed to challenge all students and provide them with opportunities to develop the Standards for Mathematical Practice in order to promote deep conceptual understanding of mathematical concepts. Our goal is for our Math students to become independent, collaborative, creative, and confident problem solvers so that they can be productive members of our ever changing 21st century world.
Standards for Mathematical Practice:
Makes sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
Model with mathematics.
Use appropriate tools strategically.
Attend to precision.
Look for and make use of structure.
Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
