Math is more than memorizing formulas and doing calculations. Math involves:

  • Highly practical and hands-on problems and skills
  • Rich problem-solving activities in collaboration with your peers
  • Some problems that will stretch your understanding to the abstract and theoretical
  • Using technology to develop, demonstrate and communicate your mathematical understandings

Students at Woodman School participate in numerous extra-curricular Math contests such as Gaus and Pascal, that challenge students in competing in national or international forums.  This provides students and their teachers with data with which to compare their skill development with that of students in other educational settings.

Woodman School works together with a Math Coach who supports teachers in the development of rich tasks that offer multiple entry points for students.  A blend of mental math and computation with problem-based orientations is encouraged.

Eligible students in Gr. 9 whose focus is in developing functional mathematical skills geared for the workplace are registered in Knowledge and Employability courses. These courses have a lower student-teacher ration and provide intensive support for students to close the gap on mathematical understanding.
