Mathematics Department Mission:
The Math Department at Seattle Prep strives to provide a high quality education in secondary mathematics, where students discover, develop, and apply their talents to the fullest. Our students are consistently encouraged to seek a conceptual understanding of mathematics and develop their problem-solving and reasoning skills as well as their ability to work cooperatively, think critically, and communicate precisely (in oral, written, and symbolic terms).
To facilitate this growth we employ a variety of teaching methods that aim to stimulate curiosity, encourage persistence, and incorporate technology use while reinforcing mathematics fundamentals needed for future study. Recognizing that each student learns differently, department members provide opportunities that address the diversity of learning styles with care and compassion. We believe in challenging students, both mathematically and personally, so that they will strive for excellence throughout their lives. Students should leave their classes with a lifelong appreciation of mathematics both in itself and in its real-world connections.
