# Math

The goal of the mathematics curriculum is to develop the appropriate problem solving skills through logical, mathematical reasoning, acquire both conceptual and procedural understandings, and prepare our students to become life-long learners in a complex 21st Century. To accomplish is goal, the curriculum will focus on providing students with tasks that help engage the students with mathematics. The type of mathematical tasks that help the students apply their understandings will help the students prepare for their future endeavors of the 21st century. Part of the process of fully understanding mathematics involves students understanding both conceptual and procedural understandings. These two aspects, conceptual and procedural understanding, are equally important; the mathematics program will provide students with an equal balance in these two aspects of mathematics. Again, this balanced approach the will allow the students to become life-long learners in the 21st century.
