Welcome to the Mathematics Department at Arapahoe High School!
The well respected math teachers at Arapahoe High School are dedicated to helping students reach their full mathematical potential as well as sharing their love of mathematics with their students. Our talented teachers are friendly and approachable while maintaining high expectations for our students.
We currently offer classes for all levels of high school students from Pre-Algebra through AP Calculus AB/BC as well as Probability and Statistics. Students that take AP Math courses at Arapahoe do very well. Approximately 90% score high enough to qualify for college credit. This far exceeds state and national percentages. With eight sections of college level math (including calculus and AP courses) being offered each year, it is obvious that Arapahoe students are well prepared when they enter college.
The variable schedule at AHS also allows students to meet with teachers outside of class on unscheduled time to clarify concepts and ask questions. The teachers in the math department are very willing to help students in classes other than their own if the student's teacher is not available. AHS also has an Academic Support Center available where students can receive peer tutoring and extra help from teachers any hour of any school day. Math classes can be difficult but there is help available for students if needed.
The department participates in several mathematics competitions throughout the school year. These competitions include the American High School Mathematics Competition, University of Northern Colorado Mathematics Competition, and Colorado Math League where we are the reigning regional champions. The department attends several Math Days at local colleges including Metro State University and Colorado State University.
Arapahoe High School math students are recognized locally and nationally for their abilities and talents. We look forward to having you join our team.
