The Mathematics Department recognizes that there are many different types of math students. Every member of the department is sensitive to this variance of skill and enthusiasm and employs this understanding in the classroom. It is our goal to communicate the dynamism and importance of this subject for all students and enable students to apply the analytic concepts of mathematics in other subjects. The department emphasizes the need to place students into the proper course level so that they can be challenged appropriately.
Our curriculum offers a wide range of courses related to both empirical and abstract mathematics. The core curriculum builds from Pre-Algebra to Pre-Calculus. After Pre-Calculus, students have opportunities to concentrate on a statistical or analytic course of study. We help students make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. In the senior year, students may take both AP Statistics and AP Calculus BC or Multivariable Calculus, reflecting our commitment to offering the most engaged and enthusiastic math students the chance to explore diverse approaches. Students may also take elective courses in computer science their senior year, and our interdisciplinary STEAM program and Makerspace engage students and teachers in cross-curricular exploration.
