• Mathematics Department Semester Electives


     

    Federal law mandates that all students complete up to Algebra 2 in order to earn a high school diploma, but Duxbury Public Schools stands among many districts that require four complete years of Mathematics to graduate high school. The electives below are to provide students with choice and the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of Mathematics applications within the semester model.

     

    Although Mathematics credit may be given toward graduation for all of the electives listed below, whether undergraduate programs recognize the coursework as satisfying their criteria for High School Mathematics programs depends on the institution and the level of the course taken. Please check with your guidance counselor and your existing Mathematics teacher to confirm that you are selecting coursework that is appropriate to your ability and that satisfies the requirements of your intended post-graduation pursuits.
