MIDDLE SCHOOL MATHEMATICS
Converting Negatives into Positives
Siena’s middle school math courses work to prepare students for high school level math, specifically concepts relative to Algebra. Teachers utilize multisensory techniques (manipulatives, color-coding, interactive games, etc.) to engage students in math concepts such as scale, linear functions, proportionality, and graphing. Students participate in collaborative activities and simulate real-world scenarios to help them engage and understand the math concepts covered. When applicable, teachers work across the curriculum, incorporating science topics into the math class and vice versa.
