WMS Families are invited to check out this interesting, not-too-scary 8+-minute video about WHY MATH IS DIFFERENT NOW. "New Math" as it's often called by parents who learned to solve problems another way, helps students UNDERSTAND, THINK and discover that SOLVING PROBLEMS is FUN!

ALEKS is WMS' internet-based math program which students use both to complement class lessons, and also during after-school Homework Help+ and at home.
The program assesses each student's specific level of mastery and then adjusts to help the individual student progress.
