The Rule of Four is a focus whenever it is applicable. Mathematical ideas can be communicated in many ways. These Rule of Four leads to a deeper understanding of the mathematics and gives students a variety of modalities to express their understanding.
Placement is based largely on recommendations from prior teachers and, when necessary, on Mathematics placement tests. Our core requirements of Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II are taught at multiple levels to ensure you are appropriately challenged and supported. Virtually all students study beyond Algebra II, through Precalculus and Calculus.
Economics courses are offered through the Salisbury Mathematics Department. In addition, we offer Advanced Placement courses in Calculus, Computer Science, Economics, and Statistics. We also offer a year-long course in Multivariable Calculus. By permission of the department and the Director of Studies, we also arrange for and enable students to receive academic credit for independent studies or online courses in advanced topics such as Abstract Linear Algebra.
The Salisbury Mathematics Department uses the TI-84 Plus CE Graphing Calculator.
