Mathematics

From adding whole numbers to solving system of linear equations, from recognizing patterns to using the theorem of Pythagoras, we strive to maintain strong basic skills and develop problem-solving strategies. We believe in “not telling.” Students explore new math concepts through complex open-ended problems that lead to multiple solutions. Students learn to explore problematic situations, explain and justify their work, as well as critique the work of their peers. The teachers’ role is to create an atmosphere where students are not afraid to be wrong but gain confidence in building problem solving strategies..
