The mathematics program empowers students by developing their logical thinking skills and ability to apply reason and mathematical concepts. The mathematics curriculum helps students form a solid mathematical foundation; solve math problems creatively using different strategies; develop the ability to reason inductively, deductively and spatially; connect math to other disciplines; and use technology to analyse data and solve math problems.

Since mastery of subject matter occurs over time by applying concepts to diverse applications, new concepts are repeated and added onto during the year. Classes cover a review of concepts learned previously and previews topics on the next level.

Teachers employ a variety of strategies to assist students master the Mathematics curriculum, including direct instruction, collaborative team investigations, classroom discussion and usage of technology software and graphing calculators.
