Hero Treatment

The mathematics curriculum at Taft prepares graduates to perform raw, logical, structured thinking. Through the study of algebra, geometry, precalculus, calculus, and statistics, 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 the majority of students continue on to higher levels of math. Students are encouraged to take a statistics course, either Statistics or AP Statistics. In addition, we offer introductory and AP courses in Computer Science. All honors and Advanced Placement courses require permission of the department.
