Mathematics Department Philosophy Statement

The Gonzaga Prep mathematics department believes the study of mathematics leads students to a deeper understanding of the patterns of God’s creation and provides a language to uniquely describe those patterns.
Students experience mathematics through active, guided discovery through which they learn important mathematical concepts and procedures which promote innovative thinking, varied problem solving strategies, inductive and deductive reasoning and critical thinking skills.
Through the study of mathematics students fully realize their own unique gifts and academic potential, prepare themselves for further educational opportunities, and develop cognitive skills to promote justice in an ever changing world.
