To get students up on math, the district is taking part in an intensive, three-year program on teaching math at Oregon State University. Fullerton IV has also initiated a before-school program, offering students an extra half-hour of academic support in the morning, using the computer-based program PLATO Math Expeditions. The school emphasizes technology programs that help with math learning, such as Math Facts in a Flash. The fun-filled Math Fiesta Night and Computer Chili Night keeps kids jazzed about the subject. The effort seems to be working. On the state-standard tests, the school’s academic scores in math were double the state target.
