The Mathematics staff are committed to offering courses that allow students to satisfy and exceed school and state graduation requirements, as well as to build a rich understanding and appreciation of mathematics. Because math is vital to the development of thinking and questioning minds, we stress the need for all students to discover and appreciate mathematical ideas. There are classes available to students of all abilities and grades, as well as opportunities to advance within the math sequence. Mathematics is vital to students leaving high school to enter college, the work force, or any future aspirations. Courses range from Principles of Algebra through Advanced Placement Calculus BC. We want to help students to stretch to their fullest potential so that they can become problem solvers and critical thinkers. The Mathematics curricula is currently in the process of alignment to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS) including the Standards for Mathematical Practices.
More information regarding the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practices can be found on the following two documents.
