Williston’s math course sequence—Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II—teaches 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. Students with a strong aptitude in math enter our honors program, and through AP Calculus experience an introduction to college-level work, and may continue beyond Calculus either through independent directed study or in courses at nearby Smith or Mount Holyoke Colleges.
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.
Special Programs in Math
Follow the antics of Williston’s most mathematically-inclined team as members solve for x at competitions in prestigious locales from Yale University to MIT.
We speak math here. Welcome to the Math Center, where you can get help with homework or just talk about cool mathematical concepts with math-maven faculty and students.
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.
