Through opportunities and challenges, our mission in the Neuqua Valley Mathematics Department is to develop self-sufficient problem-solvers and critical thinkers who are actively involved in a community of life-long learners.
The curriculum is structured into four distinct sequences based upon student abilities. Six semesters of Mathematics, successfully completed, will fulfill the three-year requirement for graduation. However, four years are recommended for many students.
- Math Team (NVHS Participates in ICTM, NSML, and DVC Competitions)
- AMC-10/AMC-12/AIME Mathematics Competitions
- Advanced Placement Course Offerings:
- AP Statistics
- AP Computer Science JAVA
- AP Computer Science Principles
- AP Calculus AB

- Calculus III - (Math 241) in conjunction with the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana.
These are many opportunities and resources for students to receive extra
help and guidance with assignments as well as fine-tuning their skills. In
addition to seeking out one's specific teacher, students can take advantage of the Academic
Resource Center, which is staffed with math students and peer tutors. Students
can drop in during their option period to get extra help. The Academic Resource
Center is located in D105 at Main and H104 at BFC.
