Welcome to the Mathematics Department

Welcome to the Benet Academy Mathematics Department. You will find the list of courses offered by our department in the curriculum guide.

The goals of the Mathematics Department are organized around the unique Benet Academy philosophy of being college preparatory, Catholic, and Benedictine. With this philosophy in mind, the department goals are:

1.) to prepare students for admission to, and for success in, institutions of higher learning;

2.) to prepare students for everyday life by teaching the skills necessary for problem solving and decision making in a mathematical setting;

3.) to provide students with an appreciation for, and ability to use, electronic media in a technological world;

4.) to help students realize the value of intellectual honesty and other characteristics of good citizenship.

The mathematics and computer science curricula are designed to accommodate and benefit all Benet Academy students. Students whose interests and strengths lie in areas other than mathematics, as well as those who wish to pursue a mathematics related college program or career will find a mathematics course of study that meets their needs and abilities. The department utilizes proficiency exams as well as ongoing teacher evaluations to ensure appropriate student placement in the curricula. Classes in the mathematics department range from first year algebra to college level mathematics and computer science courses where college credit may be earned.

In addition, for students with an extracurricular interest in mathematics, the math team participates in academic competitions throughout the school year. We are proud that the math team's "season” has consistently culminated in successful participation in the ICTM state competition.

If you have any questions about the mathematics or computer science curricula, please contact me.
