Mathematics Department

The Shady Side Academy Senior School Mathematics Department spent three years considering the third and fourth form mathematics program. Based on research and best practices accepted among our peers, we adapted materials from Phillips Exeter Academy to create a new curriculum and pedagogy for teaching under-form students. This program began in the 2010-2011 school year. Third Form students now take Mathematics I and Fourth Form students take Mathematics II. Together, these two courses will replace the previous Geometry/Algebra II sequence.
