Mathematics is important to every student. The Mathematics faculty encourages all students to become literate and competent with concepts they encounter during their mathematics studies. Students encounter numerous and varied problems that encourage them to value and develop mathematical habits of mind and to understand and appreciate the role of mathematics in their daily lives. Teachers strive to create and maintain classroom environments that encourage students to become responsible for their own learning and that instill the skills necessary for the 21 st century.
Students utilize technology in data collection, analysis, representation, conjecturing and prediction. Graphing calculators and computer dynamic software is used through the program to facilitate critical thinking and problem solving.
In addition to course offerings, opportunities are available for students to engage in mathematically oriented extracurricular activities, such as tutoring, competitions and mathematics clubs.
