Secondary Mathematics Overview
The Secondary Mathematics curriculum provides rich, challenging opportunities for our students that prepare them for success in college and career. Students explore and describe observations, explain their thinking, and ask questions. They are encouraged to use multiple approaches to solve problems and show different ways of thinking. It is our mission to matriculate/graduate/prepare problem-solvers who view challenges as an opportunity to think flexibly, innovatively, and efficiently.
The Secondary Mathematics Department regularly provides updates about secondary mathematics courses to parents. Visit 6-8 Mathematics and 9-12 Mathematics pages for updates in the world of Secondary Mathematics.
