We emphasize active approaches to engage students in mathematical concepts and applications through relevant projects that encourage students to apply their newly acquired learning.  While our math classes will follow the traditional pathway that is outlined inside the Common Core Standards (Algebra, Geometry and Algebra II), it is also incorporated in our Project Based Learning curriculum, where students learn the value of mathematical concepts, as well as teamwork and collaboration.
