Mathematics

We think of mathematics as “the music of reason. To do mathematics is to engage in an act of discovery and conjecture; intuition and inspiration; to be awed and overwhelmed by an almost painful beauty” in the words of mathematician Paul Lockhart. Therefore our program focuses on building student’s mathematical reasoning through compelling problems–students may propose and compare various solutions to find the most elegant. Depending on their math background, students will follow a course sequence of either Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II/Trigonometry and AP Statistics OR Geometry, Algebra II/Trigonometry, Precalculus and AP Calculus.
