Mathematics

The Mathematics Department at Jesuit Dallas encourages curiosity and appreciation for the beauty and practice of mathematics by leading students in their encounter with and exploration of eternal truths. We provide tools that facilitate a transformation of mathematical thinking from procedural to theoretical and practical. Students at every level are empowered to become active learners and critical thinkers who are able to examine the needs of our world and respond with confidence and competence. To achieve this end, we work with students as individuals, taking them from their current level of understanding through a rigorous four-year curriculum designed to challenge each student to reach his potential.
