From vaccine effectiveness to disease modeling to electoral politics, math provides insight into so many of the world’s challenges. 


Bay's math program develops mathematical fluency as it layers on increasingly complex skills in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, and other disciplines. In their junior and senior years or through placement tests, students can deepen their studies with electives and honors classes in calculus, functions, and non-algebraic math studies. Download our 2024-25 course catalog to see the variety of classes Bay offers. 

With the rigorous foundation provided by the Math 1, 2, and 3 sequence, students can confidently move on to specialized study and applied mathematics courses. Our program does more than prepare students for college-level math: It develops mathematical imagination.


Collaboration features strongly in Bay’s teaching of math. Research shows that concepts are more thoroughly absorbed when students are actively engaged in discussing math and articulating their problem-solving methods. As in traditional math classes, students at Bay solve problems, but they don’t stop there. The real learning occurs when they work to explain how they solved the problem. What does the equation you’ve created mean? What is the meaning of its individual parts? 


Our Immersive selection brings in creative and unexpected elements to pair math application with other disciplines. Lose yourself in the elegant geometry of Islamic art, delve into the behind-the-scenes math that makes Pixar movies possible, or learn techniques as well as history and applications of cryptography.
