Math

The Mathematics Department aims to develop mathematical literacy in all our students. The curriculum is designed to foster in students the ability to manipulate arithmetic and algebraic expressions, interpret quantitative data, and to reason logically. It is also designed to help students learn to analyze real-world situations, solve related problems, and to generalize conclusions.

Students in honors courses must be highly motivated and willing to be actively involved in classroom interaction and small group learning. They must be capable of independent study and analytical thinking. Students in Honors classes are expected to demonstrate and enhance their higher-order thinking skills, and they have demonstrated the ability to work at an accelerated pace. Especially in upper-level courses, an Honors class will cover substantially more material than the corresponding College-Preparatory class.

Beyond the Classroom

Academic Learning Center


The Academic Learning Center is a place for students to receive some extra help in math during the school day. The Center is staffed with a faculty member from the Math Department at various times throughout the school day. Examples of services include:
· Help with homework
· Answers to specific questions
· Additional explanations of difficult topics
· Supply practice problems to reinforce concepts
· Assistance with SAT or ACT practice problems

Math Team


The Math Team is open to students in grades 9 through 12. The team brings together students with a common enthusiasm for mathematics and meets regularly in preparation for monthly competitions. A spirited group, these students are committed to their own advancement of mathematics.
