It is the mission of the A. E. Wright Middle School mathematics department through the coordinated efforts of its faculty to provide a program such that all students will be inspired to achieve and excel in the highest level of math possible. The goal of the mathematics department is to maintain our high standards and expectations by teaching the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The rigor and relevance of the CCSS will enable our students to be college and career ready. We will emphasize active learning, writing and talking math, using critical thinking skills in problem solving and using tools we deem appropriate, which include but not limited to, calculators and computers.  Our students will be fluent in their mathematical skills and challenged to use mathematics in a meaningful and relevant way.
