About the Mathematics and Engineering Programs
While each unique math course at Wasatch Academy has its own set of standards and learning outcomes, the following anchors guide the curriculum we have developed.
We believe strongly in cultivating problem-solving skills, especially through hands-on practice. It is important that students can apply the many techniques that they acquire to a variety of different scenarios and contexts.
Students gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of mathematics through meaningful project-based learning. Students integrate and internalize their knowledge by applying the skills they have developed in the novel and authentic ways.
We recognize and celebrate the different skill levels of our students and provide many opportunities for differentiated and self-paced learning. We emphasize collaboration, creativity, and grit.
