Boston University Academy’s mathematics offerings have the broad goal of improving students’ comprehension of concepts, procedural fluency, capacity for logical thought and justification, as well as their inclination to see mathematics as sensible and useful. Along the way, we hope students will experience the elegance and beauty inherent to mathematics. In addition to mathematical concepts and skills, there is a strong emphasis on problem solving and effective and elegant written and oral communication. BUA teachers strive to inspire the kind of intellectual excitement that leads to discovery and genuine problem solving.
