Mr. Fatigante's Mathematics Home Page
Hello! My name is Mr. Tommy Fatigante and I am starting my third year as a middle school mathematics educator. This year, I will be teaching 6th and 7th grade mathematics. I attended Joliet Junior College and earned my Associate in Arts. From there, I went to Illinois State University and earned my Bachelors in Secondary Mathematics Education and my endorsement in Middle Level Mathematics Education. Besides being a mathematics teacher, I also coach CCMS math team and track, and also JV Soccer at the high school level.
Throughout the school year, students will be learning a variety of topics. These topics include; fractions and decimals, ratios, equations, percents, and even geometry! Students will be exploring these topics through discovery learning and group work. I am a firm believer that students learn better when working with their peers. I always tell my students that "two brains are better than one when solving a math problem!" While I want students to learn these fundamental math skills, my goal is to have students learn skills in problem solving, reasoning, and collaboration that will help them in the real world.
