The 6-12 Mathematics program at Duxbury Middle School and High School is designed
to offer equal opportunity to all students. It blends the basic skills necessary for college
entry-level mathematics with the abstract, application with theory, and conceptual
understanding. As students progress through their mathematical sequence, they are
exposed to a myriad of mathematical skills, and are frequently presented with challenges
that test their higher order thinking skills. Such skills include analyzing, predicting,
learning through discovery, and making sound conclusions based on mathematics.
Our approach to the teaching of mathematics is based upon the accumulation and analysis
of several respectable sources. Professional development opportunities coupled with
expertise and experience created the foundation for the department's teaching philosophy.
Varied instructional techniques offer students opportunities to learn cooperatively,
improve their sense of responsibility, and become self- motivated, knowledge- enriched
