The mathematics department strives to help our students meet the requirements of mathematics knowledge for life, not just for the diploma they receive at graduation. Even though we only require three years, we believe that every student should take four years of rigorous mathematics courses that best meets her needs. We believe that every student can achieve success in each of the math classes they take, and we provide the tools to help them.

Mathematics knowledge, like technology, arts and language skills, is crucial to students' development of critical and analytical thinking. The abilities to solve problems, use logic and be creative are enhanced by the study of mathematics practices and theories.
