Mathematics

Students should become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, being able to perform increasingly complex mathematical calculations with precision and mastery. They should understand mathematical terminology.

Students should also learn how to reason mathematically and to use mathematical knowledge to solve routine and non-routine problems. They will learn to develop an argument and provide reasonable justification or proof.
