Skills and processes are emphasized in mathematics classes which enable students to evaluate and analyze, think critically, use problem-solving strategies, organize data, apply and synthesize ideas, and express mathematical procedures.
Students in the Pocono Mountain School District today will live and work in the 21st century, in a world dominated by computers, worldwide communication, and a global economy. The workers of tomorrow must be prepared to absorb new ideas, understand patterns and trends, and solve unconventional problems. Students need to see mathematics is relevant to their lives. Pocono Mountain School District wants students to think mathematics, to understand mathematics, and to use mathematics. If they can do this, our students will have the confidence and the desire to meet the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow.
