Williston’s Math department helps build the foundation of mathematics that all students need, after which students can delve more deeply into mathematics through a variety of upper-level courses that help prepare them for college-level mathematics. Courses range from the foundations of mathematics to a range of engineering and computer science offerings. Students with a strong aptitude in math enter our honors program, and through AP Calculus experience an introduction to college-level work.

Academic Highlights

Engineering and Robotics

Explore fundamentals of engineering and robotics in this class, where you’ll learn the C++ computer programming language and program robots to move in various situations using motors, servos, encoders, and real-time sensors. Class “challenges” will test your mastery of course topics.

Computer Science

Housed in the Math Department, Williston offers a rigorous Computer Science curriculum, including two AP courses: AP Computer Science and AP Computer Science Principles. As part of their studies, students can learn to program in Python or dive into a course on video game programming, all while using their Microsoft Surface Pro computers.

Whitaker-Bement Girls in Mathematics Competition

In January 2020, the Middle School hosted its first annual Whitaker-Bement Girls in Mathematics Competition. 90 elementary and middle school girls gathered for a day of fun, centered around mathematics, empowerment, and growing a strong female-centric mathematics community. Subsequent competitions have moved online. Watch a quick recap video at left.
