Mathematics

We know that EVERYONE can be smart and succeed in mathematics. The goal of the Harwood math department is to develop student reasoning skills and problem solving capabilities. Our teaching centers around the Best Practices model for teaching mathematics. Our philosophy centers around the importance of student discourse about mathematics.

Students will be introduced to cognitively demanding tasks and engage in the Math Habits of Mind and Math Habits of Interaction. These habits of mind are based around the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practices. Students are asked to engage in making sense about problems, justifying their mathematical conjectures and making mathematical generalizations. Discourse between students is structured in order to have students talk in the manner of professional mathematicians.

Students graduating from HUHS will be proficient in: Modeling, Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and, Statistics & Probability. Students will also have opportunities to explore some of these areas in more depth and extend these ideas in various elective classes.
