The Mathematics Department has much to offer the students of Hempfield School District. Students are offered a rigorous curriculum of Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, and Calculus courses, with electives in the fields of Statistics and Computer Science. As attested to by numerous Hempfield graduates, the Hempfield mathematics curriculum prepares our students well for the rigors of college, technical school, and the world of work. Additionally, Hempfield offers Advanced Placement courses in Computer Science, Statistics and Calculus for students who are ready for the challenges these courses afford.
Beyond the classroom, Hempfield math students have opportunities to compete in regional, state, and even national mathematics competitions. In grades 6-8, our students have access to the MathCounts competition program. At the high school level, opportunities such as the Pennsylvania Math League contest and the American Mathematics Competition await many of our students. In addition, Hempfield mathletes are invited annually to compete at local colleges and universities to test their mathematical and computer programming skills.
