Our mission is to teach students to think, speak, and write mathematically. Embracing the mission of the school, we will foster a positive attitude towards mathematics and imbue students with an appreciation of its power, beauty and relevance.
The mathematics department at PVPA offers courses with content standards that prepare students for college or career readiness. These include year-long courses in 7th and 8th grade mathematics, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus, and Calculus. Additional courses in probability and statistics, 2nd year calculus and semester-long electives are sometimes available given student demand. All of our mathematics classes emphasize problem-solving, sense-making and articulation of mathematical reasoning.
