The objective of the mathematics department is to provide a variety of courses that prepare students for college, help them reason logically and understand basic skills, and enable them to apply what they learn to everyday life. The department offers a full range of courses including those for the mathematically gifted. Students are placed in a math course based on their completion of our math placement exam. Placement is not based on grade level, but rather on math achievement level. This type of placement ensures the success of the student.
