The JHCS Mathematics Department offers a range of classes that aim to instill habits of mathematical thinking, which will prepare students for further inquiry in math and for the use of quantitative reasoning throughout life. Math faculty prioritize developing student proficiency in problem solving and the interpretation of data graphically, numerically, orally, symbolically, and analytically. Math faculty use discovery as a means to create deeper understanding of math concepts, including teacher-led discussions, individual explorations and learning groups, which offer a natural environment for practicing mathematical communication. Formulas and methods will be derived, and real-world applications of mathematical concepts will be emphasized.
The Fall 2021 Math Substitute will provide instruction for sections of pre-calculus, Calculus I and Statistics.
