Mathematics

Philosophy

The Mathematics Department encourages learning and use of mathematics as a life-long process. The curriculum includes the important mathematical concepts and processes necessary for students to acquire the knowledge, understanding, and skills to communicate proficiently in mathematics. It is our goal that students develop the mathematical competence and confidence to use mathematics in their personal lives, and in their future studies and careers.

Middle School Mathematics Program

The middle school mathematics program is based on a sequential developmental format. The program’s goal is to develop and maintain skills and concepts needed for higher mathematics while providing opportunities for their application.

High School Mathematics Program

The high school mathematics program follows a sequential format in the first three years. Once a student has completed Algebra II, courses are provided that allow students of all abilities to pursue four years of math. All students will need access to a TI-84+ graphing calculator.
