Hero Treatment

The mathematics curriculum at Taft prepares graduates to perform raw, logical, structured thinking. Through the study of algebra, geometry, precalculus, and calculus, students develop critical thinking skills and are able to apply the skills they have mastered to solve problems. The graduation requirement is to complete a mathematics sequence through Algebra II, although virtually every student continues on to higher levels of math. Students are encouraged to branch into other areas such as statistics and computer science. All honors courses require permission of the department.
