In SAU 70 mathematics classrooms, all children, at developmentally appropriate levels, are learning:
- to value mathematics,
- to see connections within mathematics,
- to see connections between mathematics and other areas,
- to be confident in their ability to do mathematics,
- to become mathematical problem solvers,
- to communicate mathematically, and
- to reason mathematically.
This is accomplished and assessed in classrooms where:
- inquiry is valued,
- discourse and discussion of mathematical ideas are part of the teaching and learning process,
- tools—including manipulatives, calculators, and computers—are used appropriately to support the understanding of mathematical ideas, and
- communities of learners of mathematics are created.
Students K-12 develop skills in and conceptual understanding of:
- numbers and operations,
- data analysis and probability,
- patterns and algebra,
- geometry and spatial sense,
- and measurement.
At Hanover High School, the Math Department offers 18 courses.

- Do I need to take both semesters of a math course?
- Should I take a higher-level math course online alongside my in-person course at HHS?
- Should I take a math course online over the summer in order to advance to a higher-level course in the subsequent school year?
- Should I try to—and do I need to—take Calculus in high school?
- Can I take a math or computer science course at Dartmouth?
