The math department focuses on providing a foundation for students, to prepare them for high school Algebra and Geometry. These students will not only have a competent grasp of the content and familiarity with the Independent School Entrance Exam, but will also learn to use a variety of learning tools with ease, such as class textbook, other texts, student notes, and online tools. They will excel in human resources such as the instructor and student-to-student collaboration. Familiarity with these tools will allow our students to thrive in any future math classroom. Students will have shed any inhibitions or self-doubt concerning their abilities in math, and will tackle high school math classes with confidence.
The math department wants its graduates to build on the foundation the school provides to become numerate, empowered adults. They will not only be free to pursue any career or life path regardless of its math prerequisites, but will also be quantitatively savvy enough to thrive when confronting complex high-stakes issues in technology, finance, or any mathematical area of life.
