"Numbers are the highest degree of knowledge. It is knowledge itself." - Plato
We live in a mathematical world. Whenever we decide on a purchase, choose an insurance or health plan, or use a spreadsheet, we rely on mathematical understanding.
The World Wide Web, CD-ROMs, and other media disseminate vast quantities of quantitative information. The level of mathematical thinking and problem solving needed in the workplace has increased dramatically. In such a world, those who understand and can do mathematics will have opportunities that others do not. Mathematical competence opens doors to productive futures. A lack of mathematical competence closes those doors.
Students have different abilities, needs, and interests. Yet everyone needs to be able to use mathematics in his or her personal life, in the workplace, and in further study. All students deserve an opportunity to understand the power and beauty of mathematics. Students need to learn a new set of mathematics basics that enable them to compute fluently and to solve problems creatively and resourcefully.
Math Tutoring During Study Hall/Lunch and Period 2
The Sandburg Math department offers math tutoring during periods 4, 5 and 6 in room C212. In addition, students can sign up to meet with their teacher on Tuesdays and Thursdays during period 2.
Evening Review Sessions
Many math teachers offer evening review sessions to assist students. Please check our calendar for the dates and times available for your child to meet with a teacher for extra help. You can attend any math teacher's evening review session, not just the session offered by your teacher.
