Preparing for the Future

    To prepare for college and career, students at Swansea High School will study mathematics across a broad spectrum, from pure mathematics to real-world applications. Numerical skill and quantitative reasoning remain crucial even as students move forward with algebra. Algebra, functions, and geometry are important not only as mathematical subjects in themselves, but also because they are the language of technical subjects and the sciences.  Also, since we live in a data-rich world, statistics and probability offer powerful ways of drawing conclusions from data and dealing with uncertainty. The high school standards also emphasize using mathematics creatively to analyze real-world situations — an activity sometimes called “mathematical modeling.”
