"Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas."
The Mathematics Department offers a wide array of courses to provide all students with the opportunity to take four years of mathematics. Although the state’s graduation requirement is three years of mathematics, all students are strongly encouraged to take four years of mathematics. Courses are designed to challenge students of every level with the appropriate rigor and depth necessary to build a strong foundation in mathematics. Enrollment in mathematics courses is a sequential progression. The courses students enroll in from one year to the next are dependent upon their completion and success in previous classes. Therefore, it is critical to understand that placement in mathematics classes is reliant upon course sequence not grade level. All students must complete an Algebra I class to advance in the mathematics sequence that is appropriate for their program.
