    Course Description: Math Lab is one of several multi-tier systems of support (MTSS) programs Lockport Township High School if offering to encourage students and improve student academic achievement.  Math Lab is a support course held Monday through Thursday during the half-period study hall that coincides with a student’s lunch period.  (Fridays will remain as a regularly scheduled study hall).  All Integrated Math 1 requirements are assigned by the student’s Integrated Math 1 teacher.  Math Lab will NOT assign any additional math work.  This course merely provides additional in-school time, assistance, and encouragement for completing Integrated Math 1 assignments.  Students are identified by their 8th grade placement test scores.  Math Lab is NOT a credit bearing support class.  During Math Lab, students are encouraged to advance themselves mathematically through continuing to review and develop their Integrated Math 1 lessons through an online, computerized math program developed by Carnegie Learning called “Cognitive Tutor”.  To ask questions they may have on their math homework assignments and get one-on-one math tutoring assistance from a certified and experienced math teacher.
