Loomis Chaffee students were recognized for their excellence in the study of mathematics on Monday, May 16 in a ceremony in Gilchrist Auditorium in the Clark Center for Science & Mathematics.
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.
