The goal of the Mathematics program at Silver Lake Regional Middle School, as articulated in the Guiding Principles of the state framework, is to enable students to understand mathematics deeeply and use it effectively to apply learning and solve problems using multiple methods, in collaboration with their peers and independently.  To help students achieve mathematical understanding, all courses in mathematics emphasize a balace of procedural fluency, conceptual understanding, and problem solving.  The philosophy of the Mathematics Department is that students need to be actively engaged in doing interesting and challenging mathematics as they:

  • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively
  • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others

These and five other Standards for Mathematical Practice along with a coherent set of rigorous content standards from the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework for Mathematcis (©2017) are the foundation for each course in the Mathematics Department.
