Math Mission

Our mission is to help students do the following:

1) Appreciate the relevance of mathematics, its relationship to other disciplines, and its role, both in society and in their personal lives.

2) Develop the attitude, skills, and knowledge necessary to understand, analyze, and solve practical problems, with a special emphasis on critical-thinking and the application of mathematical techniques.

3) Understand the benefits of cooperative learning and how it can be balanced with independent learning to foster lifelong learning.
