Blair offers 16 mathematics courses to fit the needs of our diverse student body.

Our objectives in all courses at all levels are to foster analytical and critical thinking; to allow students to understand and appreciate the beauty inherent in mathematics; to prepare students for success in mathematics at the university level; to create an awareness of the need for mathematical literacy in the modern economy; to help students articulate mathematical thinking clearly and accurately; and to use such appropriate technology to support the other goals of the department.

The departmental graduation requirements are algebra 1, geometry and algebra 2, but virtually all students take at least one math course beyond the required sequence, with more than three-quarters of the senior class enrolled in one level of calculus. The math department comprises 12 faculty members with an average teaching experience of 15 years.
