Math

The mathematics department at MHS offers a variety of courses that range from basic math skills to AP and IB college-level mathematics. Due to the structured and sequential nature of mathematics, good attendance and a commitment to daily homework are requirements for all mathematics classes. Failure to complete one of these sequences in high school means that the student will have to complete it in college prior to taking calculus.
