Mathematics Vision Statement
The Prince William County Schools Mathematics program promotes an environment in which students develop a comprehensive and enduring understanding of the concepts of mathematics. Students learn to effectively apply these concepts and use a variety of problem solving strategies. The program nurtures a productive disposition toward mathematics, challenges all learners and supports further investigations in this field.

Amy Hickey Named Supervisor of Mathematics Effective July 1, 2015
