Math Department

Department Philosophy

Mathematics offers students an appreciation and understanding of the world of numbers and space, and skill in working with them. 

In addition to Advanced Placement Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, and Statistics (dual-credit with Portland State University), JHS offers four full years of post-calculus mathematics courses, all dual-credit: Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Number Theory, and Discrete Mathematics. These courses add up to a total of 40 college credits (12 calculus credits, 20 post-calculus credits, and 8 statistics credits).

Over 850 students chose to enroll in Honors, AP, or dual-college credit math courses this year, including 250 AP Calculus students and over 70 post-calculus students. You will likely find that one of the most valuable aspects of your math education is an engaging community ready to accompany you as far as you choose to progress in your study of advanced mathematics.
