Mathematics

"I almost didn't come to Putney because I couldn't believe such a Bohemian-looking place could have the serious math and other college prep courses I felt I needed. There's no place like it."     
—Sophie '14

Through studying mathematics at Putney, students learn the skills necessary for academic and personal success while building deep conceptual understanding through projects, rich problems, and explorations. Our courses are structured to focus on modeling change using mathematics, using technology and coding, understanding and applying properties of geometry, using probability and statistics to understand and manage data, building numeracy, and becoming financially literate. In addition to the mathematical content, we place a heavy emphasis on these broad-based skills: thinking and acting flexibly and creatively, communicating with clarity and precision, collaborating effectively, learning independently, persevering, applying logical reasoning to problem solving, and posing problems.
