Mathematics

At Kent Place, our students study topics and contexts that reveal the power of mathematics in contemporary society and their individual lives. Students investigate challenging questions that reflect multifaceted problems from the world in which they live. From Pre-K through the Upper School, our students combine their own creativity with established results, developing their own power to innovate in any type of quantitative setting. Students enjoy the process and appreciate the value of mathematical study for its own sake and for practical applications.

Our mathematics program emphasizes procedural fluency, conceptual understanding, problem-solving strategies and methods of reasoning as equally essential aspects of mathematical proficiency. Realistic and complex problems are woven throughout our curriculum, challenging each student to advance to new levels of mathematical sophistication. Through interdisciplinary studies and other long-term investigations, students experience mathematics as a subject that involves a diverse array of thinking skills.
We encourage students to personalize their experience within our curriculum. We offer multiple pathways for advancement, a variety of elective courses and research.
