At Archer, confidence and success in math are directly proportional. When students think that they can, they do. When students receive a strong foundation and believe in themselves, they are successful. When students develop personal connections to mathematics, they become open-minded, creative problem solvers. How do we empower girls to excel in math? We build confidence!
- Our integrated mathematics curriculum provides students with the opportunity to study all strands of mathematics in a connected approach and see the dynamic relationship between algebra, geometry, statistics, and probability.
- Classrooms are active learning centers where students are encouraged to use multiple methods for problem solving.
- We make lessons more approachable and promote student inquiry by utilizing examples with real-world applications.
- Teachers use cooperative rather than competitive learning, and we support each other through collaboration.
