Mathematics

The Mathematics Department offers a curriculum with topics, course content, instructional emphasis, and teaching methods that meet standards of the new century.  Programs such as Fathom, EquatIO, and Geometers’ Sketchpad are used extensively and each student will need to bring his or her laptop and graphing calculator to all math classes.  The department will provide other technology tools, such as iPads and CBRs as needed. The curriculum emphasizes experimental and exploratory problem solving and communication of mathematical ideas verbally and in writing.  Students create and use graphs of data and functions to develop mathematical skills, to reason through problems, and to understand complex relationships. During evening tutorials, in which students may meet with instructors on an individual basis, an opportunity is provided for extra assistance, independent projects and/or laboratory work.
