The mission of the Thomas Dale High School mathematics department  is to provide students with a solid understanding of the major concepts of mathematics, an appreciation for the structures and theories of mathematics, and an ability to apply mathematics to real-world situations.

The Math Department strives to develop students who have the knowledge, comprehension, and creativity to practice mathematics to be successful in the 21st Century. Resultantly, we foster our students’ abilities to utilize intellectual curiosity to solve rigorous problems, to communicate mathematically in both verbal and written forms, and to solve multi-step problems both with and without the aid of handheld technology, so that they will become productive citizens with the capacity to compete successfully in our global economy
