# MATHEMATICS.

**Subject Area Goals:**

- Scholars will learn to recognize, analyze and describe patterns and relationships in real numbers, algebraic functions, and geometric figures.
- Scholars will strengthen and deepen their number sense and their ability to organize their thoughts and use logic, both inductive and deductive to solve real world problems.
- Scholars must complete at least 4 years of math. Beginning with the class of 2013, all scholars must complete Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II and either Pre-Calculus or Trigonometry.

**Honors Distinction**

Math honor scholars may choose to take pre-calculus and calculus, with a cumulative GPA of 3.5. These classes will include a greater study of theory and practical application, in addition to the study of classics in mathematics and completion of a project based on that classic.
