The Stoneman Douglas Math Department is dedicated to helping students develop a skill base and an appreciation for Mathematics. Utilizing current technology and resources, we teach our students to communicate mathematical ideas effectively. We develop collaborative learning experiences, which enable smooth transitions for students in their future paths.
Mathematics is a universal language that allows us to make sense of fundamental principles, thoughts, ideas, patterns, problems, and phenomena surrounding us and to communicate our understanding and resolutions of these concepts to others. In order to develop and enrich student understanding of mathematics, MSD will provide a comprehensive and cohesive mathematics curriculum in which mathematical topics are explored and analyzed with significant depth.
The environment in every mathematics classroom will provide the following active and responsible engagement in the learning of mathematics, an atmosphere of risk taking, in-depth investigation and analysis of intriguing situations and problems, ample opportunities for reflection and interaction, and connections to everyday life.
Instruction in every mathematics classroom will provide a rich variety of cognitively appropriate strategies and resources so that all students have opportunities to experience both success and challenge.
As a result of this curriculum, environment and instruction, MSD students will experience the utility, power and beauty of mathematics as they become proficient in using and applying fundamental mathematical concepts and skills including: computation, critical thinking, reasoning, and resourceful problem solving.
