The Mathematics Department offers courses from the college prepatory level to the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate levels. Students gain skills in real world application as well as higher level mathematic skills to prepare them for further study at the collegiate level. We expect students to solve problems by numerical, graphical and algebraic methods. All courses use the TI graphing calculators. Although we have some graphing calculators in the classroom, students are encouraged to get their own so they have them at home for homework. Students (especially those studying geometry) also enjoy the benefits of the math computer lab.
