The Lincoln Public Schools Mathematics Program has four broad goals for students:
- Students will become mathematical problem solvers.
- Students will learn to value mathematics and the quantitative nature of our world.
- Students will develop an understanding of fundamental mathematical concepts.
- Students will acquire mathematical skills, including the ability to perform routine computations. At the secondary level, this includes traditional, but routine, symbolic manipulation.
Sequence of courses
- Adv Algebra
- Precal or Precollege
- AP calculus and/or AP statistics
College credit is an option for students enrolled in AP calculus diff, AP calculus, and AP statistics.
Students need 30 hours of math to graduate. 5 hours must be from algebra and 5 from geometry. Support classes are available at the algebra, geometry, and advanced algebra.
