The mathematics department offers students at BHSEC Manhattan a range of courses in Pure and Applied Mathematics as well as Computer Science.
Why take courses in mathematics? To gain exposure to a wide array of mathematical topics and mathematical ways of thinking that are useful across a large variety of contexts and disciplines, including the physical, social, and life sciences; to develop problem solving skills; to develop quantitative and computational thinking to a point suitable for further study in college.
