The mission of the Banting Math Department is to provide an educational experience in mathematics that helps students prepare for successful roles in an ever changing society.
This will be accomplished through our commitment to excellent teaching and a supportive environment for all our students. To support this mission we will be committed to professional development, making real world connections, and incorporating technology.
Students will be challenged to develop skills in analysis, reasoning, creativity, collaborative learning, and self-expression as they gain knowledge of mathematics. We will maintain high academic and behavioral expectations and try to make every classroom minute count. Efforts will be made to direct students to realize their full potential.
The Math department will be running the university of Waterloo Math contests for grade 12s. As of now, there is an associated cost $16 and a sign up procedure. THe contest date is April 5. Information will be announced closer to the date.
Calculators are available for purchase through cash online. Please see your teacher
Math HELP is avaliable at lunch on select days and after school help is coming soon. Please speak with your Math teacher.
