Welcome to the Mathematics Department at Salesianum School! The Mathematics Department offers a variety of courses ranging from Algebra I to AP Statistics where the focus is on mathematics as an integrated whole as opposed to a subject of isolated ideas. Our goal is to help students to develop critical thinking skills and problem-solving skills that will benefit them both in the classroom and beyond. In each course, teachers emphasize for their students the mathematical process in addition to the product. Students are exposed to situations that utilize hands-on activities to model real world problems. More importantly, the Mathematics curriculum has been developed to challenge students.
- to think and reason mathematically
- to recognize and generalize patterns
- to focus on problem analysis and synthesis
- to write and communicate mathematically.
Four years of Mathematics is required at Salesianum, and throughout those four years, technology plays an integral role as a catalyst in the learning process. All students are required to have a TI-83 or a TI-84 Graphing Calculator. Some students who are taking Calculus courses choose to purchase a TI-89. These graphing calculators are utilized regularly in classroom instruction because they allow for mathematics to be taught through a multi-representational approach. In addition, students are exposed to software programs such as TI-Interactive, Geometer’s Sketchpad, and Mini-Tab. These programs bring a dynamic feature to the problem-solving process that assists students in exploring and discovering the reasoning behind many abstract concepts in Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, and Statistics.
