Department Philosophy & Goals

The philosophy of the Mathematics Department is an echo of the school’s philosophy to educate the whole person and develop the qualities of the DSHA Graduate. Our primary purpose is to educate young women in mathematics and to challenge them to do the best they can, according to their abilities. Critical thinking and communication of mathematical ideas are emphasized. The goals of the Mathematics Department are to develop and refine a student’s ability for problem solving and to equip each student with sufficient mathematical skills so that she has the freedom to pursue the college curriculum and/or career of her choice. Concepts of mathematics are related to real world situations and careers at every opportunity. The department strives to provide an atmosphere where students learn to enjoy and appreciate mathematics, and develop confidence in their mathematical skills. The use of technology is integrated throughout coursework.
