THINK STRATEGICALLY · INTERPRET THE SYMBOLS · REASON FROM FIRST PRINCIPLES · USE MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES
The Lick-Wilmerding Mathematics Department invites students to experience the power and beauty of the subject. We teach students how to think mathematically, focusing on inquiry, sense-making, reasoning, and application. In each class, students have the opportunity to collaborate, persist, and seek multiple approaches in order to become more flexible and strategic problem solvers. Students develop a learning mindset by reflecting on mistakes and viewing them as opportunities for growth. With this mindset, students know that they can learn any mathematics they may need to achieve their goals in life.
