FREDERICKTOWN — For many of our readers, the terms “new” and “math” in combination have negative connotations. That is not the case at Fredericktown Middle School, however.
This year, the school adopted a new math curriculum, transitioned to a team teaching model and changed the schedule to include two math periods a day.
Of the two periods of math, one is a typical math class and the other is called a Math Discovery class. With Math Discovery, teachers are reinforcing material that was previously taught, assisting students having difficulties or introducing material that will be presented in the next lesson. Students in Math Discovery also have the opportunity to work together in pairs or small groups to complete their assignments.
