The Mathematics Department at The Grove School strives to make learning math accessible to all students, with an emphasis on developing skills that can be transferred through every level. It is the goal of this department to help students reach and/or exceed their potential. To accomplish this, we provide students with a general education curriculum guided by Common Core State Standards and scaffold assignments to meet individual needs. At all levels, students develop an understanding of the basic processes of mathematics and learn to apply these processes through challenging structure and course work.
Business/Real Life Mathematics
Grades: 10, 11, 12
Business Math (also known as Real Life Math) is a class that offers instruction for every day mathematical situations. In this course, students will define and refine skills that will aid them in tasks that range from simple balancing of a bank account to understanding taxes and discounts and other everyday needs. This class is ideal for students needing more math credits as well as for seniors preparing to enter the ‘real world’.
