Math Department Mission

The goal of the Math department at Westinghouse is to prepare our students to confidently solve real-world problems by helping them build strategic competence and conceptual understanding to establish their abstract and critical thinking skills. We work to promote in students a habitual inclination to see mathematics as sensible, useful, and worthwhile.

Disciplinary Skills

Successful Math students are able to:
  • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
  • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
  • Model with mathematics.
  • Use appropriate tools strategically.
  • Attend to precision.
  • Look for and make use of structure.
