MHS Mathematics Department

The Math Department aims to create a synergy between the acquisition of content knowledge, the delivery of instruction, the infusion of instructional technology, and the implementation of a variety of traditional, authentic and digital assessment tools. Students become effective problem solvers as they learn to communicate and reason mathematically while making sense of problems and persevering in solving them. An annual Pie Day Celebration bolsters an appreciation for learning through engaging classroom activities and explorations, contests, and a school-wide visual display of fractal triangles. The four year program is designed to foster independent thought, rigor, collaboration, and emphasize conceptual understanding. The program begins with Algebra 1 and culminates in the study of Calculus. A rich curriculum, including Honors and Advanced Placement courses, allow students to exercise choice and take the opportunity to further challenge themselves.
