Mathematics & Computer Science

The Mathematics and Computer Science Department takes very seriously the idea that MUHS is a college preparatory school. The Department offers a strong, fundamental program in mathematics. The goal is to lay a strong foundation in each course for the next course, which the students will take. Since the majority of students take four years of math, this is critical.

Students are placed in one of two "tracks" depending on their math test scores and grade school achievement level. Besides the normal sequence of Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Pre-Calculus math, the Department offers the advanced student an opportunity to enter the accelerated track in which he will take five math courses in four years -- the fifth course being Calculus. Students who successfully complete the courses in the accelerated math curriculum will be able to earn college calculus credit through the AP testing program.

The Department also offers computer science courses as elective options. The courses develop an understanding of the nature of technology, help students recognize its potential impact on lives, and use a variety of technologies to prepare students for post-secondary educational studies.
