The Mathematics Department strives to use math as a tool to help students succeed both in school, in advanced educational institutions, and in their careers. The department feels that all students will have developed skills, critical thinking, and problem solving that will enable them to pursue further related fields and provide the competence and confidence to succeed.
The Math Department reflects the mission of the school in that the curriculum challenges each student to reach his/her highest potential by providing two levels of instruction. These are provided to accommodate the different levels of cognitive development in Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II.
Calculator skills are used in certain areas of the geometry curriculum. Scientific and graphing calculators are used in advanced mathematics and calculus courses.
