We have adopted a shared vision for mathematics and science. Our goal is to help all students develop the knowledge and skills needed to participate fully as enlightened citizens in economic, social and civic actions and decision making in an increasingly complex society. The knowledge, skills and habits of mind needed to achieve this goal include:
- The ability to use mathematical and scientific ideas to reason and communicate about personal, occupational, community and global issues.
- Thorough understandings of mathematical and scientific ideas, connections among ideas and the application of these ideas.
- The use of mathematical and scientific tools.
With this knowledge and these skills, our students will be mathematically and scientifically literate, and able to lead productive lives.
