Math classes offered at Fern Bacon Middle School include MATH 7,
MATH 8 and COMPACTED MATH 7/8 AND MATH 1 for our advanced / GATE
students. Fern Bacon also offers sections of support for
students who are below grade level and need additional
instructional support. Math is taught through the
Common Core Standards with a focus on real world problems and
experiences while working in collaborative groups. Students
are expected to explain their thought process through writing,
and speaking and demonstrate their conceptual understanding
rather than simply seek solutions. Students are encouraged
to find multiple methods to approach a math problem and multiple
possible answers.Students may spend an entire class period
dissecting one task that leads them through a rich dialogue that
promotes critical thinking and mathematical reasoning.
In addition, math classes have access to complete class sets of
laptops and all 8th grade math classes use iPads with Apple TV to
further increase rigor in classrooms, making the connection
between math concepts and technology with a focus for preparing
students for the 21st century and beyond.
