Math team looks to return
Support Kweller Prep, sponsor of The Classic:
For the 2014-2015 school year, math teacher Stephen Mazza will offer “Advanced Topics in Mathematics,” a new elective exploring college-level math topics that are still comprehensible to students who have only taken Algebra and Geometry. Through the class, he hopes to revive the math team, which was lost when the math department lost a math teacher to budget cuts three years ago.
“The class will kind of be half math team, half college class,” said Dr. Mazza. “We will still have time to do the various contests and prepare for them, but with a full five-days-a-week class we will have some time to explore higher levels of mathematics that students would otherwise not see until college.”
Dr. Mazza encourages any students with a strong average and passion for math to join.
“I am trying to make something new and exciting at THHS,” said Dr. Mazza.“I plan on running a very interesting class that will open students’ minds to the vast array of mathematics that is out there.”
