Spring 2025

Monday, January 27 – Friday, May 16, 2025


Fixed-Pace Course


Precalculus and completion of grade 10



Have you ever wondered how spies exchange secret messages? How about planning an epic college road trip without breaking the bank? Do you know about the pivotal role mathematics plays in shaping critical decisions within the realms of economics and politics? Get ready to dive into all these cool questions and more in our Discrete Math class! In this course, we will engage in a comprehensive exploration of real-world problems through a structured, discovery-based learning approach. Enhancing their skill set, we will develop proficiency in problem modeling, the application of technology, algorithmic analysis, recursive thinking, decision-making through mathematical frameworks, and the application of inductive methods to problem-solving. The curriculum encompasses a spectrum of mathematical disciplines, including graph theory, matrices, cryptography, game theory, number theory, probability, and statistics.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
