Welcome to the Vanguard Math Department Homepage. We're under massive construction, thank you for your patience.


Vision and Purpose
The Mathematics Department at Vanguard prepares students for college level math thinking through its rigorous curriculum
and various assessment strategies. Students take a sequence of math courses, including Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II/Trigonometry,
and Math Analysis. The College Prepatory Mathematics (CPM) curriculum is followed throughout.
Students in the math department are assessed in their math classes based both on their habits of work and mind, measured
through proficiencies. Those that excel have the option to take our certified AP Calculus Course during their 12th grade year.
Student who need extra support are placed into Math Foundations for support.
Upon completing the math curriculum, students must present an oral defense to graduate. They are also encouraged to earn a
75+ on the Math Regents exam to earn CUNY entrance waivers.
