"Numbers are the highest degree of knowledge. It is knowledge itself." - Plato
We live in a mathematical world. Whenever we decide on a purchase, choose an insurance or health plan, or use a spreadsheet, we rely on mathematical understanding. The level of mathematical skills needed in the workplace (Medicine and Engineering) has increased dramatically. In such a world, those who understand and can do mathematics will have opportunities that others do not. Mathematical competence opens doors to productive futures.
Students have different abilities, needs, and interests. Yet everyone needs to be able to use mathematics in his or her personal life, in the workplace, and in further study. All students deserve an opportunity to understand the power and beauty of mathematics. Students need to learn a new set of mathematics basics that enable them to compute fluently and to solve problems creatively and resourcefully.
My mission is to develop in my students the mathematical abilities they will need to become productive citizens. I am committed to providing curriculum, instruction, and assessment that will actively involve my students in constructing and applying mathematical ideas, to solve problems and enable my students to express the mathematical connections in the world around them with algebraic, geometric, or numeric representations.
In Math there are no problems, only solutions.
