Mathematics and Computer Science

The Mathematics Department views its subject as both a process and skill – a process of intuition, logical deduction and synthesis, and a skill that is necessary to be a mathematically literate woman who has the ability to solve problems in both theoretical and real world situations. The Mathematics Department strives to provide courses, instructional activities, and technology that meet the common and specific needs of students attending the Academy. Throughout diversified and individually adapted courses of study, the program is designed to achieve two goals: an immediate goal of acquiring the fundamental skills necessary to analyze and solve problems, and a longer term goal that prepares our students for a constantly changing society increasingly dominated by quantitative methods, data analysis, and the use of technology.
