Mathematics at Huntington
The Mathematics Department believes that there is a level of mathematics study available to every student. The mathematics program emphasizes computational skills, problem-solving techniques, and mathematical structure. Students learn skills and concepts, and practice analytical and critical thinking. They study the uses of the computers, statistics and measurement.
Algebraic and geometric structure, logic, and analysis provide a sequential program for the college-bound. The decisions made about the courses taken in high school affect each student for the rest of their lives. The teaching faculty, the school counselor, the school administrators, and parents can all advise in the course selection process, but the student should be fully involved in the final decision and be ready to bear the responsibility for that decision. For this reason it is imperative to read course descriptions with considerable thought and care.
In selecting your courses for next year, several factors should be considered. These factors include graduation requirements and your job or school plans for the future. All students are required to complete successfully three credits of mathematics and demonstrate a minimum level of proficiency on a New York State exam.
