"Students' experiences in mathematics provide the skills and knowledge necessary to be able to select from a variety of post-secondary options and future career choices."
The Brooks School Mathematics Department seeks to provide the most meaningful educational experience our students will have in their lives. Whether a student enters our curriculum in Algebra 1 or in Honors Advanced Precalculus, we accept students where they are and then work to help each student grow to meet their achievement goals.
The Mathematics Department firmly believes that students’ experiences in mathematics provide the skills and knowledge necessary to be able to select from a variety of post-secondary options and future career choices. Guided by our vision, the mathematics curriculum balances the development of procedural skills, conceptual understanding of mathematical ideas, appropriate use of technology, and opportunities for critical thinking and problem solving.
The small class sizes at Brooks School encourage effective collaboration with peers and builds each students’ ability to communicate mathematical reasoning. Teachers help students develop the reasoning and problem-solving skills necessary to think critically and encourage mathematical modeling in which students make choices about how to use mathematics to create representations of a real-world process. Brooks School sets high expectations for all students and provides the support necessary to help them meet those expectations.
