PHS Math Department
Welcome Pirates!
Our teachers work collaboratively to implement teaching strategies focused around the Eight Standards for Mathematical Practice to prepare students for future coursework and careers. Because we want to foster critical thinking skills and produce students who are problem solvers, Pattonville math students will be called upon to do challenging work in problem solving, work that may require students to struggle to find unique solution pathways. Students will also be asked to communicate with mathematics, both verbally and in written form.
"The object of teaching a child is to enable him to get along without a teacher." ~Elbert Hubbard
Our textbooks for Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and PreCalculus support the Missouri Learning Standards. Each classroom will have a classroom set of books and students will have access to the textbooks online.
