At Hudson College our SMART SKILLS PROGRAM™ helps students develop in five critical areas: Speech Arts, Mathematics, Analytical Writing, Research, and Team Building. The development of Mathematical skills is done through an enriched and superior curriculum combined with academic support programs that include after school support, counselling, workshops, remedial programs and individualized one-on-one help.
The underpinning philosophy of Hudson College’s Mathematics program is that mathematics courses are a part of a cohesive whole and not a collection of disjoined or separate disciplines. Logic, geometry, trigonometry, algebra, functions, statistics, data analysis and calculus should form a unified course of study. As we seek to foster an appreciation for the theoretical foundations of mathematics and its practical applications our students will develop a strong proficiency in numeracy skills and the use of various mathematical techniques as tools in problem solving.
At Hudson College we seek to develop students who are adept problem solvers, able to focus clearly on needed practical results, and then arrive at solutions using a variety of strategies at their disposal. Students are led to develop logical thinking and application skills necessary to obtain sound solutions. Students will be helped to become rational thinkers, capable of applying abstract concepts to real world problems, a primary skill needed to cope successfully in a world of rapid change.
At Hudson College students see the relationships among the different areas of mathematics learned as well as the applications that each of these have in other subject areas. With the most progressive use of computer technology, the latest mathematics software and very rigorous courses students are fully prepared for the standards expected by the university program which they wish to pursue.
In addition students are provided with ample mathematics enrichment opportunities through our mathematics club and the schools participation in local and international mathematical contests.
