CHATHAM, NJ - Karen Chase, assistant superintendent, gave a presentation on the School District of the Chathams' updated resources for math at the middle school on Monday night at the board of education meeting.

The presentation went over the steps new math supervisor Denis Sheerin, hired in July, took to improve communication with parents and provide additional resources for Chatham Middle School Connected Math students. To connect to the Chatham Middle School math website click here.

Middle school students will receive access to videos and resources such as Math XL and Reflex Math. One specific aspect addressed was the assignment of "extension" problems for homework.

"We value any feedback we receive from parents," Chase said. "What we heard was that students struggled with these problems at home. Teachers will not be assigning extension homework problems unless they've already been reviewed in class and the student knows exactly what to do. So that is one modification we are making moving forward."

Sheerin wrote a letter to parents that can be found here, explaining how communication between teachers and parents will be improved this school year.

The updates to the middle school math program were prompted by concerns from Chatham mothers representing Chatham Cares About SchoolsThe group shared surveys and studies with the board of education and met twice with Sheerin, Chase and superintendent Dr. Michael LaSusa in recent months to discuss ways to improve the Connected Math program.

Karen Chase, assistant superintendent, announces that students will not receive homework extension assignments unless they have been explained in class first.

Karen Chase goes ovet the new information and interactive features now on the Chatham Middle School website in the math section.
