Mathematics (Honors, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Precalculus, AB Calculus, BC Calculus)
Taught by Will Betke-Brunswick, Liz Burroughs, and Adam Gilbert
We design math classes to engage students fully and prepare them to reenter their school math programs at a high level. The mathematics programs of our sending schools help shape our own curriculum. Information provided by each student’s school helps determine placement.
We utilize real-world applications of the math we study, especially applications related to the natural world. This helps develop mathematical techniques and stronger problem-solving skills, a deeper fundamental understanding of mathematics, and important connections to other parts of the curriculum and the Chewonki mission. We expect our students to learn to attack math problems individually and collaboratively and develop the ability to communicate mathematical ideas through writing and speaking.
