The Mathematics department goal is to instruct students at their capacity for intellectual knowledge and to prepare them for aesthetic appreciation, in-depth study, and critical thinking. The department aims to develop students' understanding of mathematical concepts, relationships, techniques and deductive logic, along with the precision and aesthetics involved in the study of mathematics, especially involving computer and calculator-based applications. The student who understands mathematical processes and content, as well as the value of mathematics, will be able to function efficiently and responsibly in our ever-changing society.
- Advanced Placement courses in Calculus (BC and AB levels), Statistics and Computer Science
- For those students ahead in the Honors sequence, special courses in Honors Multivariable Calculus, Honors Differential Equations and Honors Linear Algebra
- A new Technical Drafting course using Computer Aided Drawing (CAD), an especially useful course for those planning careers in engineering, architecture, interior design or construction management
- Careful placement of each student in the best possible course each year based on past performance in math courses
