The math department is committed to developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills through the discovery and application of mathematical concepts. Students will engage in abstract mathematical thinking that is grounded in real-world application. Over the course of three years of middle school, students will develop skills needed to independently solve increasingly complex mathematical questions
At the high school, the Math Department aims to create a synergy between the acquisition of content knowledge, the delivery of instruction, the infusion of instructional technology, and the implementation of a variety of traditional, authentic and digital assessment tools. Students become effective problem solvers as they learn to communicate and reason mathematically while making sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
The four-year program is designed to foster independent thought, rigor, collaboration, and emphasize conceptual understanding. The program begins with Algebra 1 and culminates in the study of Calculus. A rich curriculum, including Honors and Advanced Placement courses, allow students to exercise choice and take the opportunity to further challenge themselves.
