The New Rochelle High School Mathematics Department Mission Statement

The New Rochelle High School Mathematics Department provides engaging high quality instruction, a rigorous cogent and comprehensive curriculum, and a supportive collaborative learning environment for a diverse student body.  We recognize and respect different learning styles and respond effectively to optimize learning potential, as we incorporate the theoretical aspects of the discipline into real life experiences.  We teach complex problem solving by developing skills in analysis to explain substantial chains of reasoning, and by using technology as we seek to help students understand the nature and importance of mathematics and how it relates disciplines.  We cultivate and nurture curiosity about mathematics by encouraging inquiry, logical thinking, and critical reasoning. We prepare students for successful roles in an ever-changing society by challenging them to persevere and by instilling an appreciation of the intrinsic beauty of mathematics.
