Mathematics

The math here is unequaled

The extensive WRA math curriculum encourages creative exploration and curiosity as well as:

  • Thinking, reasoning & perceiving mathematical relationships in a meaningful way
  • Critical thinking & problem solving
  • Asking good questions, exploring ideas & noticing connections

"By building relationships with students, we make learning a positive experience for everyone. we meet students where they are and move them forward by challenging and supporting them with a focus on developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills. we offer several different paths and are thoughtful regarding intitial placement and course trajectory."

- Sherry Chlysta, Mathematics Department Chair

The (many) Paths


Spotlight Course

Intermediate Algebraic & Geometric Reasoning

This course allows students to expand their view of algebra while adding depth to connections with geometry, trigonometry, and statistics. Topics include composite and inverse functions, quadratic and radical functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, basic trigonometry, areas of polygons, and volumes of solids. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the behavior and graphs of the various “toolkit” functions. Extensive use of the graphing calculator is expected.

Graduation Requirements

3 credits, 3 years of mathematics at WRA, with one credit at the 30 level or higher.
