    Department Vision

     

    Students will use mathematics as a tool to solve rigorous, non-routine, real life problems.

     

    ·Understand how to read a problem carefully and begin to formulate a strategy for a solution

    ·Communicate the process behind a solution and critique thoughtfully the thinking of others

    ·Determine the reasonableness of a solution and discuss the appropriateness and accuracy of the solution

    ·Investigate community and world issues analytically, thoroughly, and objectively

    · Thoughtfully alternate between abstract and applied thinking

    * Understand how to choose appropriate tools to solve a problem

    ·Create innovative solutions to personal, community and world problems that involve multiple content areas

    · Develop a growth mindset that all people can achieve in mathematics to a high level
