Course Selection

The primary goal of the Mathematics Department is to provide a curriculum that meets the academic needs of each student at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy. The Mathematics Department strives to develop opportunities for students to engage in active inquiry at every course level and to encourage students to achieve their highest mathematical potential.

All students are required to take four years of mathematics and some elect to take one or more additional elective math courses. The typical four-year sequence of mathematics begins with Geometry and extends through Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, or Statistics. Courses in 9th and 10th grade are sectioned into Honors and College Prep while in 11th and 12th grade the classes are sectioned into Pre-AP, Honors, and College Prep, allowing for each student to be challenged at an appropriate level. The full range of AP courses is also offered and taught to the specific AP curriculum. Students enrolled in these courses are required to sit for the AP exam in May of each year. All students enrolled in Upper School mathematics courses are expected to have a graphing calculator (TI-84 Plus). Students are encouraged to communicate with their math teacher, advisor, college counselor, and parents as they determine the appropriate sequence of courses for their high school program.
