Mathematics Department

To be successful in our changing world, students need to adapt to changing conditions, use technology effectively, and acquire skills for processing large amounts of quantitative information. Our mathematics curriculum equips students with an understanding of important mathematical ideas; essential mathematical knowledge and skills; and skills of reasoning, problem solving, and communication.

The development of mathematical knowledge is a gradual process. Our continuous curriculum builds on concepts that help students see the "big pictures" and underlying principles. Our courses offer opportunities to investigate new ideas and concepts, make connections between new learning and prior knowledge, and develop an understanding of the abstract mathematics involved.

By studying mathematics, students learn how to reason logically, think critically, and solve problems - key skills for success in today's workplaces.
