    Vision

    The vision of the RPS Mathematics Department is to enable ALL students to move into the twenty-first century with the mathematical skills, understanding, and aptitude that they will need to be successful in their careers and daily lives.

    Philosophy

    Problem solving is the central focus of mathematics education, therefore an attitude of persistence must be developed in our students so they can solve the complex problems, which are common.

    • Students will be taught reasoning strategies to make, test, and evaluate mathematical statements and to justify steps in mathematical procedures.
    • Students will have frequent opportunities to apply their mathematical skills in real life situations.
    • Students will develop a strong personal confidence in their ability to do mathematics.
