Our upper-school mathematics program begins with Pre-Algebra in 6th Grade, Algebra in 7th Grade, and Geometry in 8th Grade. The emphasis is on building a strong foundation in Algebra and Geometry that will allow students to continue accelerated work in high school and beyond.
Advanced mathematical concepts are also included in the curriculum; by the end of 8th grade, students have been introduced to complex numbers, infinite series, transfinite numbers, and conceptual calculus. Students have also explored the mathematics of computing and cryptography as applications of prime number theory, combinatorics, and modular and binary arithmetic. We believe our students benefit from experiencing the power and beauty of these important and fascinating areas of mathematics at an early age.
