Mathematics

Overview

The Mathematics Department at Linden Hall is devoted to developing the reasoning and problem solving skills of each student and to instilling confidence in her ability in mathematics. The use of technology enhances learning and mastery of mathematical concepts, and provide a collaborative working environment. Each class emphasizes active problem solving skills and application in solving real-world problems. We offer advanced placement and honors level courses for more rigorous study, and we prepare for, and participate in, various math competitions for girls interested in pursuing additional work in math outside their regular coursework. Additionally, we offer computer science courses, and mathematics courses beyond the AP level, through One Schoolhouse.

* These courses are offered at Linden Hall online through One Schoolhouse, taught in a fully synchronous environment that simulates a classroom with a teacher. They are supervised at Linden Hall by our Assistant Head of School for Academics. AP Computer Science A is equivalent to a first-semester, college-level course in computer science. AP Computer Science Principles introduces students to the creative aspects of programming, abstractions, algorithms, large data sets, the Internet, cybersecurity concerns, and computing impacts. Students who exceed mathematics coursework taught in the classroom at Linden Hall approach advanced topics through One Schoolhouse.

Placement in Honors and AP Courses

Beginning in grade 9, students who earn a B+ or better average in the preceding class and are recommended by the department may be eligible for Honors or AP level coursework.

Students may elect to take AP Statistics at any time following Algebra 2, Honors Algebra 2, or Pre-Calculus. The Mathematics Department recommends that students plan to take AP Statistics as an additional or terminal math course, rather than interrupting the flow of progression through mathematics coursework.
