The mathematics program is designed to meet the academic needs of all students. Challenges and
enrichment opportunities are provided to all students in both the Academic and the Honors sequences.
The mathematics curriculum has high but reasonable expectations for all students. Success in
mathematics is more dependent on effort and opportunity to learn than on innate ability.
The goal of the mathematics curriculum is to emphasize the process of mathematical reasoning rather
than simply the mechanics of computing. Students will be challenged through diverse problems and
projects. Higher-order thinking skills, such as application, analysis and synthesis, will be modeled and
emphasized. Students will be encouraged to participate in various appropriate high school mathematics
