With the clear need to produce and nurture STEM competency, we continue to offer Honors Math so that students have the opportunity to be challenged beyond the core math curriculum. Our faculty strives to accept students’ divergent ideas. We influence learning by posing challenging and interesting questions. In our Honors Math program we project a positive attitude about mathematics and about students’ ability to “do” mathematics, i.e. be actively engaged solving challenging, applied problems. We encourage students to share their mathematical ideas while working in pairs and groups.
