All students can learn mathematics and deserve the opportunity to do so. Recognizing the diversity among children, Hampton educators do not expect all students to learn mathematics in the same manner, using the same resources, and in the same time frame. Instruction, therefore, focuses on an activity-based, hands-on system of delivery wherein students utilize a wide variety of manipulatives, calculators and computers to transition them from concrete understandings to pictorial representations before they embark upon abstract concepts.

**The Secondary Mathematics** **Department** is primarily responsible for the development and implementation of all high school credited mathematics courses in middle and high school. Our primary goal is to provide support for a meaningful, interesting, and rigorous mathematics curriculum, aligned with the State of Virginia’s SOLs, the Advanced Placement Curriculum, and the International Baccalaureate Program. We are eager to serve our community of learners so that our students have the necessary mathematics preparation for continuing education and the workforce. In addition, we help our students understand the joy of an involvement with mathematics in a recreational setting. It is our consistent desire to provide the best mathematical instruction for all of our students in an effort to help them recognize the lifelong value that mathematics offers.
