Math with Mr. Farrell
Welcome Ladue Scholars!
Here you will find information about your mathematics course and a little about myself. Check this site regularly for updates!
"Mathematics is not a list of disconnected tricks or mnemonics. It is an elegant subject in which powerful knowledge results from reasoning with a small number of principles." -CCSS
ONE THING I WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT ME: I DO NOT TEACH MATH - I TEACH STUDENTS AND SCHOLARS.
It is up to you to seize upon the opportunities you will encounter in our classroom. In the future it will be up to you to decide how you will use the knowledge you will gain to make a difference.
ENTER TO LEARN, GO FORTH TO SHARE.
Ladue Horton Watkins High School has been "Honoring Tradition, Continuing Excellence" since 1952. Let us not rest on laurels but continue to push forward by following our school motto, "Enter to learn; Go forth to share."
LADUE SCHOOLS MATHEMATICS EDUCATION PHILOSOPHY
The ability to understand and successfully apply mathematical knowledge is critical to today’s citizen. The students of Ladue must learn to explore, conjecture, and reason logically as well as develop self-confidence in seeking, evaluating, and implementing information to become lifelong mathematical problem-solvers and decision-makers.
To develop these skills, tasks are selected to engage the students’ interest and intellect. Teachers offer learning activities that actively involve students and are differentiated to meet the needs of all students.
