Realizing that today’s society places many demands upon the individual, we assume the task of relating mathematics as a functional, meaningful, and basic tool necessary in all aspects of life. We are committed to educating students to become logical thinkers by expanding their mathematical capabilities and interests and by including the use of technology.
Students are expected to be active participants in the educational process, and, along with their teachers, assume responsibility for the learning of mathematics. As educators we recognize that while all students can benefit from the study of mathematics at various levels, not all students proceed at the same pace. Therefore, we strive to promote learning through an individualized and self-directed approach whenever possible.
We recognize that each student is capable of learning and should be made aware of the usefulness and practicality of mathematics. The ultimate goal is to develop an attitude in the students that will stimulate curiosity in, and an appreciation of, mathematics.
“Mathematical problem solving is the hallmark of an effective mathematics program. Skill in mathematical problem solving requires practice with a variety of mathematical problems as well as a firm grasp of mathematical techniques and their underlying principles. Armed with this deeper knowledge, the student can then use mathematics in a flexible way to attack various problems and devise different ways of solving any particular problem. Mathematical problem solving calls for reflective thinking, persistence, learning from the ideas of others, and going back over one’s own work with a critical eye. Success in solving mathematical problems helps to create an abiding interest in mathematics.” The Massachusetts Mathematics Curriculum Framework
