US Mathematics

The study of mathematics encompasses material from the factual to the theoretical, and the Mathematics Department designs its program to contribute to both the common and the special needs of each student. It teaches discipline and principles of logic which may be applied to both higher levels of mathematics and to new fields of study.

These tenets are fundamental to our curriculum:

  • That principles of sound algebra are emphasized in all courses, that analytic manipulations in arithmetic and algebra are a priority and that technology is presented to further extend analysis and understanding
  • That mathematics is inherently cumulative, so understanding the basics is essential for further success in this sequential discipline.
  • That all courses should involve interpreting results, dealing with abstractions and developing generalizations, independent thinking and value estimations.
  • That visual representation through graphing via transformations is paramount to understanding functions and relations.
