Mathematics

The philosophy of the mathematics program in the Upper School is reflected in its goals, which are to provide the student with the information and skills necessary for advanced work in mathematics and the sciences, real world problem solving, critical thinking, and making sensible, responsible decisions in a highly technological society.

Course offerings include Geometry in Form III, Algebra II in Form IV, Precalculus in Form V, and AP Calculus AB and Applied Calculus in Form VI, although some students may take a different sequence of courses because of acceleration. A course in statistics and Mathematics & Money may be offered some years. Courses are generally offered at two levels: a standard (B) level and an accelerated (A) level.
