New students and new standards

Mekiah Glynn, Staff Writer

Math and science departments have new staff and new goals this year. The math department teachers are focusing on making math “interesting and engaging” for students. The science department is teaching new standards that are more “updated” and “accurate” for teaching students.

“Since I’ve been at Gunderson we have had at least one new math teacher a year, so it’s nice to have a solid group of teachers,” said Christopher Lu, head of the math department, in regards to this year’s math department.

“We’re replacing the old scientific methods and curriculum with much more updated and in my opinion, much more accurate ways to assess students learning in the realm of science,” said Roy Walton, head of the science department, about the new science standards.
