Loomis Chaffee recognized students for their academic and extracurricular achievements at the 2018 All-School Awards convocation on May 22, and the Student Council announced the selection of Adnan Rubai as Teacher of the Year.
The Math Department at Loomis values the practical reasons for studying mathematics, but also aims to share a deep appreciation of the abstract beauty of mathematics with every student. With many academic and extracurricular opportunities, such as our competitive Math Team, we encourage you to think carefully about the concepts that spring from our fundamental ideas concerning magnitude, quantity, shape, structure, and reasoning.
Our talented and qualified faculty offer accelerated course study in classes such as Calculus BC, Accelerated AP Statistics, AP Computer Science, Multivariable Calculus, and Linear Algebra. And if you exhaust our curriculum, we offer customized additional learning opportunities through an independent study program. We believe that it is very much in your long-term interest to study mathematics, keeping doors open to many fields that may prove of interest in the future.
The Math Department recognized achievement in mathematics for 85 students at its Math Honors event on Friday, May 18. Bio-statistician Aparna Anderson was guest speaker at the morning reception.
Loomis Chaffee students participated in state and regional academic competitions focused on science, technology, engineering, and math in March.
College Level Computer Science students presented their end-of-term projects using Arduino, a small, open-source platform that can be used to create interactive objects.
Mathematics is not only in the course work on campus. We offer opportunities to engage others in many areas of mathematics through visiting speakers, alumni lectures, peer tutoring in our Quantitative Resource Center, honors celebrations, and field trips.
