All people can learn mathematics and develop mathematical power. The mathematics department offers a curriculum with a common core of mathematical topics and a range of course offerings that provide all students access to meaningful and rigorous courses of study. Course content is aligned with the Massachusetts Mathematics Curriculum Frameworks and every effort is made to help prepare for MCAS testing. All students are required to pass three years of high school mathematics. Courses fall under four categories: 1) Advanced Placement, 2) Accelerated, 3) College Prep and 4) Core.
Many courses will incorporate graphing calculator technology into instruction. Be advised that some calculators are available for use in the math department. However, to benefit most, students need to purchase their own graphing calculator to use in school and at home while completing assignments. We recommend the Texas Instruments TI-83 or TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculators.
