Sci-Matics at Buck Mountain Central School

Teachers Shelby Bend, Linda Kwirant and Nicole Townsend updated the board regarding their innovative Sci-Matics course developed at Buck Mountain Central School.

Sci-Matics was recognized as part of the board’s commitment to celebrating excellence. Teachers at Buck Mountain Central School initiated, created and are currently offering a combined Grade 10 science and mathematics program to increase student engagement and support successful completion of Grade 10 science and math requirements: Science 10 combined with Math 10C, Math 10-3 and Science 14 ισ Sci-Matics.

Teachers presented positive student feedback and increased results, with a desire to build on it next school year.
