Mathematics is one of the cornerstones of human knowledge and has been recognized as such since earliest times. It is the foundation of science and technology, and increasingly, it plays a major role in determining the strength of the nation's work force.
Today, many more students can and must attain a level of mathematics understanding traditionally reserved for only a few. In order to succeed in our information-based society, students must have a solid understanding of the basics -- reading, science, history, the arts -- and at the center of this base of essential knowledge must be mathematics. It is important that all students learn how to problem solve and to apply concepts in real-world settings.
Workers can no longer get by with a single, well-practiced assembly-line skill, and a few reading and computation skills. Businesses want capable people with broad, transferable knowledge who can learn quickly on the job, master new technologies, and adapt to career changes. They are demanding higher order, problem-solving skills that cut across disciplines.
The mathematics curriculum provides a concrete and sequential study of mathematics while providing rigor and challenge for all students. Students are given the opportunity to master challenging mathematics, which includes algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, and calculus.
