As the impact of technology on our society continues to broaden, a foundation in and facility with mathematics will become increasingly necessary.  For that reason, the Mathematics Department strongly recommends that each student complete four years of high school mathematics regardless of his or her plans after graduation.  Success in mathematics courses depends upon the mastery of skills, understanding of basic concepts, proper placement and
adequate motivation.  Homework is an essential element in all mathematics courses.  It is expected that all students will spend sufficient time on the homework assignments not only to complete the homework but also to gain the necessary practice, skills and understanding of the material.  It is beneficial for students to purchase their own scientific calculator so that they may become familiar with its functions.

Department Announcements
Food Drive
The Math Department's annual Food Drive to celebrate Pi Day was a huge success. 
Table Talk Pie Co. in Worcester, MA,  generously donated 11 cases of mini pies to help celebrate Pi Day (3/14). High school students and staff members were asked to donated non-perishable food items in exchange for the Table Talk pies.     
Over 800 non-perishable food items were collected and donated to the Grafton Food Bank. 
The prize for the math class with the highest average number of items per student goes to Miss Travers' Period 5  Algebra I class with an average of 11 cans per student!!!
Thank you to everyone who participated.
Pi Day
Pi Day (3/14) is coming!!! 

The annual Math Dept canned food drive to benefit the Grafton Food Bank starts March 3rd.  Students who bring in a non-perishable food item to their math teacher will be given a ticket for a mini Table-Talk pie.   Additional items donated, after the initial one, will be given additional tickets at a reduced rate.  Pies will be available during lunches on Wed 3/12 through Wed 3/19.   The math class with the highest percentage of donations per student will win a pizza party!

Staff members are invited to participate also.  (Who can resist pie?)
Please no glass jars, no dented cans, and no expired items.  Thanks, in advance, for your participation and support of the Grafton Food Bank.
