Accelerated and Enriched Mathematics
The Accelerated and Enriched (A&E) math program is not designed to serve the good math students, but rather to meet the needs of those rare students, who have unusual talents in mathematics, and who, because of those talents, learn mathematics in non-traditional ways. They learn quickly, of course, but they are not merely fast learners. Rather, they are students who learn concepts and procedures through problem solving and discovery, while working with teachers who place considerable demands on them because of their capabilities. The research on gifted education suggests that only about 3 to 5 percent of a school population will generally qualify to participate in a gifted program. In the past, at each grade level in WW-P, between 30 and 70 students have qualified for participation; however, there is no limit on the number of students who may enter the program.
