Department Philosophy

The aim of the Mathematics Department is to teach the student to appreciate Mathematics as a logical, sequential system of thought, applicable to the many aspects of everyday life. Three years of Mathematics are required of every student at Fontbonne Academy. In the fourth year, a student may choose from the elective courses.

Courses are offered in an integrated sequence and at four levels: basic, standard, honors, and advanced placement. All courses meet a minimum of seven times each cycle. Incremental development builds on concepts and brings the student to a higher cognitive level. It also permits long-term practice of concepts.

The Department seeks to achieve the following instructional goals:

  • Maintain and extend computational skills
  • Use formulas with competence
  • Express an appreciation for the validity of the deductive reasoning process and use it in appropriate problem-solving situations
  • Think more effectively in the abstract
  • Write with ease about math topics and concepts
  • Solve problems successfully, including computations, narrative, and non-routine problems
  • Use technology to strengthen math concepts
  • Use the graphing calculator with proficiency
  • Apply learning of mathematics to everyday situations and other disciplines
