“In mathematics the art of proposing a question must be held of higher value than solving it.” George Cantor
Math Department Goals
By ensuring a rigorous curriculum, analyzing data within content/course specific areas, and implementing interventions for struggling students, the Myrtle Beach High School Math department will work diligently to increase the overall level of student achievement during this school year. As a team, we understand that in order to be successful as a post-secondary student, you must have a good mathematical background. Experiencing this success will enable our students to go on to other academic mathematics courses needed for higher education and promising careers.
Each student will need to bring the following materials to class every day:
- sharpened pencil
- calculator (if a student does not have a calculator, one will be provided)
- math textbook
- all notes and completed assignments
- other materials as specially designated by the teacher for specific topics of instruction
If your student needs extra help with a math class, please let the teacher know. Teachers will be glad to assist any student at a time which is suitable for both. Students should advise the teacher of any needs in advance and not wait until the day before a quiz or test to ask for help. All tutorial hours are posted outside of each teacher’s classroom. In addition to teacher tutorial, the math department hosts an after-school tutorial session for all math students on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 4:30 in A 202.
