Math Department



The Mathematics Department offers a four-year sequence of college-preparatory courses for all students. Our courses attempt to accommodate the diverse backgrounds, learning styles, and aptitudes of our students so as to enable every student to reach his or her potential in a supportive, academically focused environment. We want our students to realize that the power of mathematics derives from more than accurate computational skills. Mathematics encompasses the science of finding patterns, in quantities or shapes, to model behavior in the real world. These patterns allow us to understand current behavior and to predict future trends.

The Mathematics Department offers several levels of mathematics instruction for all four years of high school. All levels are designed to prepare the student for college. The differences lie primarily in the degrees of abstract versus concrete thinking skills, repetition of instruction, expected mastery of previously learned material, independent versus directly supported learning, and application of concepts to familiar versus unfamiliar circumstances.


The Applied Sciences in Business and Computer Technology Department considers the needs of the community, the interests and needs of the students, and the changing demand of business and post-secondary education due to the ever-changing global economy and technological advances.

 Courses in Applied Sciences in Business and Computer Technology prepare students for entry-level positions, as well as developing sound business ethics and a capacity for thinking and reasoning skills. The following list of courses should provide a guide to those students who will enter the job market immediately upon graduation or for those students who will further their education. In today’s global economy and with the advancements in computer technology, a sound base in business and computer technology is a benefit to any student going into and field. This department is the primary source of computer application programs.
