Mathematics

The mathematics department strives to expand each student's quantitative reasoning skills in order to ensure success in students’ higher mathematical endeavors and in their postsecondary education. Students learn to face mathematical problems with confidence while equipped with the necessary skills and strategies to be successful. In addition, students practice effective communication with their peers and teachers through peer tutoring, group work, and FirstClass conferencing. Beginning with Algebra I, the use of the TI N-Spire CX CAS graphing calculator is required, enhancing the graphic analysis of functions and applications.  Math courses are yearlong and, except for courses such as Statistics, are designed to be sequential. Due to the diverse backgrounds of entering students, all new students are placed in appropriate courses by the department chair. Enrollment in Honors, Advanced Placement, and post-Advanced Placement courses requires departmental permission.
