Mathematics

math-dept.jpgThe math department emphasizes problem solving and critical thinking. Coursework develops the ability to explore, make conjectures, reason logically and communicate mathematical ideas.

The general goals of the program are to provide all students with knowledge of the basic facts, principles and methods of mathematics, and the computational skills needed to apply them. Seventh graders are grouped according to placement test results. A two-track sequence, chosen by the student and parent(s) with advice from teachers, starts in grade 8. An honors program is offered in grades 11 and 12.
