 # Math

Understanding how math is used in the real world and applying it to make the best possible decisions. ## Guiding Principles:

• INNOVATOR-CENTERED. Providing a hands-on environment to explore, invent, discuss, and debate the meaning of math.
• INTEGRATION. Introducing subjects not as a collection of isolated concepts but as an ever-evolving body of interconnected knowledge.
• BUILDING KNOWLEDGE. Using problem-solving approaches to meet Innovators where they are and to develop their thinking and understanding.

## Sparking innovation and nurturing problem-solving skills.

Our approach integrates real-world applications, hands-on activities, and technology. With a focus on personal growth, students will tackle challenging problems, fostering resilience and logical reasoning at their own speed.

### MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH

Covers concepts such as ratio, proportion, number systems, expressions, equations, and 3-dimensional shapes.

Foundations of Algebra

Builds on these concepts and focuses on proportional relationships, rational numbers, variables and equations, basic probability, statistical thinking, and angle relationships.

Algebra 1

Delves deeper into algebraic thinking with equations in variables, linear functions and systems, algebraic geometry, exponents and exponential functions, polynomials, and statistical analysis.

### UPPER SCHOOL MATH

Our integrated math sequence takes a holistic approach to mathematical reasoning. Integrated Math 1, 2, and 3 interweaves Geometry, Algebra 2, and Precalculus (along with introductory statistics) across all three years of study: covering topics such as algebraic manipulation, functions, modeling, geometry, trigonometry, and probability. Electives, such as Calculus, Calculus 2, and Statistics, delve into advanced topics like limits, differentiation, integration, probability, and data analysis. All of our courses emphasize problem-solving, critical thinking, and real-world applications.
