Mathematics

Have you ever wondered if there's a mathematical way to figure out which charities are the best ones to support? Did you know that examining major-league pitching is the perfect way to study and understand the Pythagorean Theorem? How is the study of algebra or statistics valuable to your own personal commitment to social justice? How can we use drones and trigonometry to measure a large water area? How can we use math to create art and architecture models?

If you like to think outside the box, and you want assurances that what you're learning in the classroom has applications beyond the classroom—applications that matter to your life and your future—then Marvelwood's mathematics program offers just what you're looking for. Our math curriculum provides just the right challenges, at every level from Advanced Placement and Honors to one-on-one remediation, and our teachers constantly seek to connect fundamental concepts to real-world applications. We meet you where you need to start, and take you where you want to go.

Math in Action

 

 

Imagine a place of possibility...

Marvelwood School’s Mathematics Department provides a supportive environment for students to learn increasingly sophisticated mathematical skills and applications. We encourage the development of students as analytical thinkers, enabling them to become life-long learners. Students are challenged to connect fundamental concepts to practical real-world applications, and have access to resources, including technology, that support the development of mathematical curiosity. Teachers are committed to meeting the needs of all students and provide instruction and extra help at all levels, from one-on-one remediation to Advanced Placement preparation. We meet students where they are and help them get to where they need to go.
