The Friends Select Mathematics Department strives to meet the needs of each student through a flexible program within a supportive learning environment. In hopes of creating lifelong learners who appreciate the beauty of mathematics, our program emphasizes critical thinking and the development of problem solving skills, through the discovery of ideas and patterns. Electives are accessible to a variety of abilities and interests. We strive to meet the needs of students who would like to explore topics outside of the traditional curriculum, and those who would like to accelerate through the sequence. Faculty work to help students make connections between what they are learning in the classroom and how it will be used in everyday life. We encourage students to have tenacity, to be flexible, and to be willing to try a different approach to solve a problem. The sharing of ideas through class discussions is a critical component of the classroom and learning experience. Technology is used to enhance the discovery and learning experience.
