The Mathematics Department’s curriculum meets the needs of all Episcopal students, with keen attention paid to students’ differing mathematical backgrounds, developmental levels, and conceptual abilities. Topics and concepts are presented and developed theoretically (at developmentally appropriate levels), then reinforced analytically, graphically, and numerically. Calculators are used at all levels (graphing calculators beginning in Algebra 2) to supplement skills and to enhance conceptual understanding. The curriculum carefully follows the standards established by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the State of Florida, and the College Board.
Mathematics courses are required each year from sixth grade through eleventh; although not required to do so, more than 95% of Episcopal students opt to take math classes during their senior year, with course selections ranging from Discrete Mathematics to Advanced Placement Statistics to AP Calculus AB or BC.
