 Rider High School
 Welcome

Welcome to the Rider High School
Mathematics DepartmentRider offers a strong math program to meet the needs of all students.
Seniors must have successfully completed four years of high school math to receive a recommended diploma. To facilitate student's needs Rider High School offers a Math Lab for freshmen who need help with their math skills, so the student will be successful in Algebra 1 and on the new EndofCourse state tests. Advanced Quantitative Reasoning (AQR) is for seniors who have finished Algebra 2 and are not taking PreCalculus or have taken Regular PreCalculus and are not taking Calculus or Statistics. AQR is not a college readiness class. Parents and students should consider the student's post graduation career path before enrolling in this class.
Rider also offers advanced Pre AP classes in:
Algebra 1
Geometry
Algebra 2
Pre Calculus
AB CalculusBC CalculusThese Pre AP classes are designed to prepare students for AP Calculus AB or BC and/or AP Statistics. Students passing College Board exams in these courses can earn college credit.
Rider High School provides graphing calculators for classroom use. Our math teachers participate in specialized training throughout the year, which keeps them current in new teaching techniques. All math teachers offer tutorials. Each teacher should inform their students of tutorial days and times.
