Department Focus

The focus of Mathematics instruction at Lester B. Pearson High School is the student. At the conclusion of their three years here, it is intended that students will be:

  • effective communicators
  • knowledgeable and thoughtful learners
  • self-directed learners
  • collaborative workers
  • critical and creative thinkers
  • quality producers and performers
  • community contributors

Central to the accomplishment of these goals are the following strategies:

  • frequent use of technology in both class instruction and individual projects
  • challenging and innovative assignments that stretch and strengthen student understanding
  • encouragement of student and teacher collaboration
  • opportunities for students to have ownership in directing their own learning.
