Welcome to the East Williston School District Mathematics pages.
The 2011-12 Academic Year is a transition year in mathematics. Along with most other states, New York is moving toward the Common Core State Standards Initiative. The standards are informed by the highest, most effective models from states across the country and countries around the world,.
The K-5 standards provide students with a solid foundation in whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and decimals—which help young students build the foundation to successfully apply more demanding math concepts and procedures, and move into applications.
The 6 – 8 standards move students from concentration on number and operations to algebra, probability and statistics. The middle school standards are robust and provide a coherent and rich preparation for high school mathematics.
The high school standards set a rigorous definition of college and career readiness, by helping students develop a depth of understanding and ability to apply mathematics to novel situations, as college students and employees regularly do.
In all three schools, students have the opportunity participate in mathematical contents. Students in North Side participate in Mathematics Olympiads for Elementary School Students. Students in Willets Road may participate in the American Mathematics Competition 8, Continental Math League, Math Olympiads, MATHCOUNTS, Junior High Mathletes, New York Math League, and Sigma. Students at Wheatley may participate in the Nassau County Interscholastic Math League, the New York Math League, American Mathematics Competition 8, American Mathematics Competition 10 and American Mathematics Competition 12 and the American High School Mathematics Exam. At Wheatley, Students in grades 9 – 12 may take a Research class and participate in the Al Kalfus Long Island Math Fair.
Academic Intervention Services are available to students who need extra support in Mathematics from grade 3 through the Regents classes.
Computer Science electives are available for students in grades none through twelve.
