Title 1 Math Resources

My name is Jim Stranix and I am the Title 1 Math Instructional Assistant here at PV Middle School West. This web page was created to provide you with links to math resources that have been gathered to help students improve their math skills. There are links to current math class material, instructional videos with practice problems and other useful info. I update the site regularly so that the links can be used for help with homework, reviewing current material and studying for quizzes and tests.

 Click the links below for a sample of the resources.
