Creative Problem Solvers

We encourage our students to become active, creative problem solvers. While we stress the historical significance as well as the practical applications of the concepts we teach, we hope our students will carry with them an appreciation of the beauty of mathematics throughout their adult lives.

MATHEMATICS ELECTIVES

Include Advanced Studies in Statistics, Advanced Studies in Discrete Mathematics, Advanced Algebra with Financial Applications, and Philosophy of Mathematics. Recent independent study courses have included Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, and Transition to Higher Mathematics (an introduction to set theory, logic, and more).

HONORS & INDEPENDENT STUDIES/SPECIAL TOPIC

All students in honors-level courses must maintain a grade average of B- or better in order to advance to the next course in that sequence. Participation in the American Mathematics Competitions is expected of Top Honors students and encouraged for those enrolled in the Middle Honors curriculum. In addition, many high school students elect to enroll in independent studies/special topics to further pursue concepts related to Mathematics. Sample courses include Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Microeconomics, Multivariable Calculus, Modern Cryptography, Game Theory, Advanced Problem Solving, and much more.
