The mission of the mathematics department at Wheaton High School is to ensure a high quality education in mathematics that will enable all students to be productive problem solvers and competitive citizens of the 21st century.
Our math teachers at Wheaton are working closely with the students to provide them with an effective mathematical instruction program that will help them acquire the math skills and abilities to promote success in their college years and throughout their lives, both within and beyond school settings.
Many courses recommend the use of a calculator. Algebra 1 requires it. Any student who does not have a calculator may borrow a TI-83 or TI-83 Plus calculator from the math department. You must return your calculator at the end of the year in order to clear all obligations. If the calculator is lost, stolen or damaged while in your possession you must pay the full price of the calculator ($90). To borrow a calculator, see Mrs. Schreckengost in the Math Office, room 217, before school, after school, or during lunch. Supplies are limited. See Mrs. Schreckengost today.
