Math

The Mathematics Department's goal is to prepare all students to be mathematically literate at a college preparatory level. It is the objective of the department that students be able to successfully solve problems and express mathematical ideas in a clear, concise, and logical manner. Students should be able to conjecture, reason, draw logical conclusions, and generalize their results. In examination of problem situations, students should apply their mathematics to model practical situations. It is the goal of the department to meet the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards for college bound students. These include: Mathematics as Problem-solving, Mathematics as Communication, Mathematics as Reasoning and Proof, Mathematical Connections, Mathematical Representations, Numbers and Operations, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement, Data Analysis, and Probability.


Courses utilize lecture, discussion, investigations, guided discovery and numerous hands-on activities. Students interact through group activity to make concepts meaningful and concrete. Assignments to reinforce these concepts are given in connection with each lesson. The assigned problems are checked and group work or teacher demonstration is used to clarify difficult problems. Technology (computers and calculators) is utilized at age-appropriate levels in the mathematics program.
