The Mathematics Department
The Montgomery Bell Academy Mathematics Department seeks to facilitate our students' admission to college, to provide the tools necessary for success in college and beyond, and to show students the joy and beauty that can be found in mathematics. In addition, recognizing the growing importance of technology, the department tries to provide each student with hands-on experience with computers and/or graphing calculators not to replace but to augment the learning that has traditionally taken place in the math classroom. These ends are achieved through a traditional sequence of courses in addition to a number of elective math courses, including a strong Advanced Placement program in calculus, statistics, and computer science. While the department strives to have every graduate leave MBA with the math skills necessary for success after high school, the department supports an active community of stronger math students who compete in MATHCOUNTS, city and state math contests, and the American Mathematics Competitions.
