In a technological society there is a reliance on mathematical competence and understanding to process quantitative information, to solve problems creatively and resourcefully, and to use technology appropriately. Students have different abilities, needs, and interests. Yet each student needs to be able to use mathematics in his or her personal life, in the workplace, and in further study. The Mathematics Department offers a variety of courses designed to provide students with a coherent and challenging curriculum at levels designed to accommodate student differences. Instructional strategies promote engaged student learning and appropriate use of technology. To insure proper placement, math teachers make individual recommendations for all students each year.
