The Mathematics Department offers a variety of courses including Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry/Precalculus, Calculus (both full-year and semester courses) and Statistics (both full-year and semester courses). All courses are offered in varying levels of difficulty, and are taught at a college preparatory level.

The Lincoln-Sudbury Math Department has adopted new level designation names, beginning in Fall 2017.

The following changes were adopted to:

  • Improve alignment with other L-S departments and with the sending middle schools.

New Level Designations:

  • "Accelerated Advanced" has replaced "Intensive".
  • "Advanced" has replaced "Level 1".
  • "Standard" has replaced "Level 2"
  • "Foundations" has replaced "Level 3" and "Topics".

Most incoming ninth graders will be enrolled in one of the following courses:

  • Geometry Accelerated Advanced
  • Geometry Advanced
  • Geometry Standard
  • Algebra I Standard

The Math Department Coordinator is Melanie Palma.
