The aim of the mathematics curriculum is to develop each student’s analytical and reasoning skills.  On every grade level, the math program emphasizes the understanding of mathematical concepts, problem solving, inductive and deductive reasoning, and application of mathematical knowledge in real-life situations. Structured and cooperative teaching strategies include lecture, discussion, note taking, individual and group work, presentation of solutions on the board, use of technology, and reinforcement through extensive classwork and homework.  Student evaluation is based on classwork and homework assessment, weekly quizzes, chapter tests, semester finals, and an overall evaluation considering participation, effort, and progress in general.
