The Mathematics Department at Northwestern Regional seeks to promote the growth and development of each individual within a mathematical context. This is achieved through the application of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards and the Connecticut Mathematics Frameworks in all mathematics classes at Northwestern. Essential knowledge and skills include appropriate math content, problem solving, cooperative grouping, technology, performance assessment and oral and written presentations.

The mathematics department faculty places high expectations upon themselves and their students. The classroom environment is built around a discovery and application approach to mathematics. Students are expected to experiment, investigate, conjecture, communicate, and make presentations on a regular basis. Problem solving occurs in both individual and cooperative group settings with graphing calculators and computers used to enhance learning. Student assessment takes many forms from performance based projects to written tests, and classroom participation to student portfolios.
