The Mathematics Department of the New Providence School District recognizes that its responsibility embraces the academic aspects of the education of youth by providing intellectual and cultural experiences. Our philosophy is to engage students in a variety of mathematical activities to instill in them and to encourage them to search for new ideas and processes. We believe that learning is a personal, individual process and therefore it is our responsibility to provide for a wide range of ability, interest, motivation and achievement levels. The department presents an environment in which inquiry and experimentation play a major role in the acquisition of developmental skills. Both practical and theoretical models are formulated and tested.
