The Maine West Mathematics Department strives to address the varied needs of all our students by utilizing an integrated curriculum, differentiated instruction, and the Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS). Our professional Learning Teams (PLTs) employ these practices to encourage students of all abilities to reach their full potential as life-long learners, while supporting the development of content and skills, critical thinking and problem solving.
