    Individualized Mathematics provides any student the opportunity to study, at a suitable pace, a mathematics subject of his or her own choosing. A teacher tutors students in the same classroom, enabling them to accelerate their progress while providing individual attention for students experiencing difficulty in mathematics.  
     
    Prior to the start of classes, students should meet with a math teacher at their school to discuss goals for the summer program. They should bring a textbook recommended by that math advisor for use in class. Individualized programs are offered in the following areas: middle school mathematics, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, pre-calculus, and SAT/ACT mathematics. In order to do justice to the title “Individualized Mathematics,” this course will be limited to eight students per section. If a student’s summer schedule does not allow placement in the preferred grade-level session, he/she may request to be enrolled in a different session - some mixing of grade level sessions occur. (This course is divided into two, 3-week sessions that may be combined to create double 3-week periods or a 6-week program.) 
  • Algebra II (Full Credit) – IN-PERSON FORMAT

    Students entering Grades 9 - 12  
    June 12 – July 21 (6 weeks) 
    8:30 am - 12:20 pm

    In addition to reviewing and expanding on the material in Algebra I, this rigorous, fast-paced, full credit course covers complex numbers; polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions; systems in two and three variables; sequences and series; introductory trigonometry; introductory probability; and applications of all of these topics. Instruction will emphasize multiple representations of concepts, including a strong expectation of technology use (graphing calculators and dynamic Web-based tools). Daily sessions will combine independent, group, and instructor-led work sessions. Students will be expected to complete additional work at home in preparation for each class. Hawken students must have permission from the Math Department Chair prior to taking this course for academic credit. Non-Hawken students need to check with their school to determine if the class will be accepted for credit.  
  • Geometry (Full Credit) – REMOTE FORMAT

    Students entering Grades 9 - 12  
    June 12 – July 21 (6 weeks)  
    9:00 am - 1:20 pm  
    $1,700 
     
    Geometry is a full-credit course in Euclidean plane and solid geometry, designed for strong mathematics students. The daily schedule of this fast-paced course will consist of group sessions with the instructor and independent student work sessions. Each day’s work is roughly equivalent to a week of classes during the regular school year, so missing class due to trips out of town or other events is greatly discouraged. Students will also be expected to do additional work at home each day. Hawken students must have permission from the Math Department Chair prior to taking this course for academic credit. Non-Hawken students need to check with their school to determine if the class will be accepted for credit. This remote class will be a combination of synchronous (online) and asynchronous (independent) work and students are expected to begin synchronous attendance at 9:00 am each morning.
