The Dana Hall Mathematics Department cultivates mathematical thinkers who are prepared for the challenges they will face in a dynamic, changing world.
Students succeed best when they are appropriately challenged; thus we provide differentiated instruction. Collaboration, the utilization of technology, and investigative tasks are some of the tools used to encourage students to be resourceful, questioning, curious, independent, and confident mathematical thinkers.
Students are presented with connections between mathematical topics, across other disciplines, and to the world around them. Perseverance, problem solving, and logical and creative thinking are encouraged while investigating patterns, data, geometric figures, graphs, numbers, functions, and applications. Dana Hall provides a rigorous program of study, but also ensures that every student has the support needed to succeed by providing the time, space, and resources to enhance their understanding.
