The H-F Mathematics Department strongly believes that all students should have the opportunity to learn mathematical concepts and skills necessary to prepare them for any post secondary experience. It is our expectation that students will reach their highest level of mathematics by utilizing critical thinking skills, engaging in exploration and discovery activities, and solving complex problems. To accomplish this, teachers will implement various learning strategies and techniques, employ technology and evaluate student progress using multiple forms of assessment.
