Math

In The Classroom

Seton High School’s Mathematics department offers a challenging, hands-on and rigorous program sequenced to support the individual needs of students with varying talents and abilities.

Students acquire 21st century technology skills through tools such as graphing calculators, tablet PCs, smart devices, and through software programs and APPS. Students who need extra support in Mathematics are actively engaged in ALEKS, a blended-learning software that combines technology with a classroom teacher to individualize and tailor instruction. Students who excel in Mathematics have the opportunity to advance to Advanced Placement AB and BC Calculus as well as opportunities to participate in a variety of college and career ready electives.

Flexible Credit Opportunities

Accelerated students who have successfully passed Algebra 1 and the Algebra I End of Course Assessment at the grade school level may be able to test into Honors Geometry and Honors Algebra II. Please see our Curriculum Guide for additional information.

To fulfill diploma requirements, 4 units of credit must be accumulated. Please see our Curriculum Guide for course descriptions.
