MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT PHILOSOPHY
Mathematics is a common language that can help students unlock complex problems and provide a lens of understanding by which to make applied and valuable connections to other fields, professions and disciplines. Mathematics offers its own unique set of knowledge, skills and processes enabling students to discover ways to solve old problems and develop new ways of thinking about the world around them – a skill that is essential to tackling the biggest challenges in our interconnected, global world.
The Mathematics Department’s mission is to produce students who are flexible and critical thinkers, able to independently problem solve and effectively communicate both reasoning and results. We strive to create a meaningful and student-centered learning experience for all students by leveraging the individual talents of our faculty.
PRIORY TEACHER DESCRIPTION
The Priory teacher plays a dynamic role in creating and facilitating an academic experience that cultivates the Benedictine values of Spirituality, Community, Hospitality, Integrity, and Individuality, and the 21st century competencies of critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration, and resilience. As an educator who models and promotes a growth mindset, the Priory teacher actively engages in research-based best practices to prepare our students to navigate and to participate in an ever-changing world as lifelong learners and stewards. Priory teachers employ all aspects of their craft—content, curriculum, assessment, and instruction—to teach for understanding: to foster deep thinking, meaning-making, and intellectual curiosity.
