The mission of the mathematics department is to provide our students with a robust education in mathematics that will give them the skills to succeed in a global community.
To accomplish this mission, the teachers of Nyack will collaborate to revise and update curriculum, share best practices, and incorporate technology. To enhance students' experience in mathematics, we will integrate the subject to real life experiences and to other disciplines.
Students that are enrolled in the following courses must complete summer work:
AP Calculus AB or BC, Integrated Algebra 2, Integrated Geometry, Algebra Elective, Integrated Math 8 and Integrated Math 7
The Math Program at Nyack Middle school aims to meet the needs of a diverse student body. Teachers use the Connected Mathematics Program (CMP-3) in conjunction with the modules from EngageNY. Please visit teachers' class pages for additional information and resources for your child.
