Math Department

Welcome!

On behalf of the Regional School District #10 Mathematics Department, I would like to welcome you to our new webpage! This site will be 
dedicated to communicating important information regarding mathematics curriculum, events, documents, and celebrations of student work. 

Congratulations to:


Our most recent Math Team competitors- LSM came in third place in the Western Connecticut Math League competition on October 17th. Nice work, team! 

The Math Department's Student Performance Expectation is:
The LSM graduate effectively employs critical thinking in the problem solving process.

We provide our students with the opportunity to complete Advanced Placement AB and BC Calculus (via Virtual High School) and Advanced Placement Statistics during their high school career. We offer students opportunities to explore mathematical applications in statistics, business, and finance. Our teachers serve the community in many ways. They work with students before and after school. They participate in various school committees and lead a variety of school clubs. Our curriculum represents continuous improvement that reflects teaching students the underlying concepts of mathematics, rather than emphasizing repetition of math skills. We teach students how to analyze data and how to think analytically. Our curriculum is grounded in mathematical research from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the CT Core Standards, the Connecticut State Department of Education, and the collaboration of our Region #10 colleagues. We assess students in a variety of ways. We ask for exhibitions, critiques, reflection and revision. Our work is shown symbolically, graphically, numerically, and verbally. Assessments include teacher made projects, tests, quizzes and homework. The Standardized Achievement Tests will be utilized to inform instruction. We focus our learning K – 12 on the following four essential questions: How do you use mathematical strategies to solve problems? How do you use the language of mathematics to communicate? How is mathematics used in the real world? How do you use mathematical reasoning and justification?
