The Mathematics Department at Cardinal Gibbons High School believes in providing all students with the mathematical knowledge, skills, and confidence they will need to be college and career ready. The development of problem-solving skills is a major goal of our mathematics program. Students will communicate their thinking numerically, graphically and algebraically. Teachers will encourage students to question one another when an explanation doesn't make sense to them.
Our goal in the mathematics department is to enable students to take greater responsibility for their own learning, to develop essential communication and decision-making skills, and to understand the fundamental concepts of mathematics, all of which will be critically important to them in any field of study.
Our courses are designed to give students the skills and knowledge required for their future. Algebraic, geometric, and statistical thinking and applied mathematics are essential for all students, and to that end, we teach our first three years of math in a sequence that integrates those concepts. Cardinal Gibbons High School aligns our curriculum with the Diocese of Raleigh Catholic Schools’ curriculum standards, which in turn align with the NC State Math Standards.
