The Mathematics Department of Holy Name High School is designed to help each student become a life-long problem solver. Courses are constructed to meet the needs of students with various abilities. It is our goal that students will develop a deep understanding of the necessity of mathematical competency and an appreciation for the technological world in which we live.  

Policies / Requirements / Standards

In compliance with state standards, the mathematics department requires students to take 4 years of mathematics. The mathematics department offers opportunities for students of all abilities to actively participate in a mathematics course.

All incoming Freshmen are placed into a math course using three benchmarks: junior high school grades, standardized test scores, and results of our placement exam.

Students are recommended for placement in future classes by their current mathematics teacher. Teachers will consider performance and grade requirements as listed in the curriculum guide.  

  • Formative and Summative Tests and Quizzes
  • Cooperative Learning Activities
  • Projects
  • Online Assessments and Activities
