Ms. Gail Lambert, Assistant Principal

Mathematics attempts to model the truth about the physical world and anything that happens within it that can be measured. Our department prepares students to complete their study of advanced arithmetic and computation – which includes algebra, geometry, and trigonometry – so that they may, if they choose, go on to study relevant and significant attempts to model reality through calculus and beyond. – Gail Lambert, Assistant Principal
