Math Department Goals
The objective of the math department at Ohr Moshe is to teach students to think logically and critically.
In general, we aim for our students to recognize that mathematics is an art, as well as a powerful tool necessary to understand the function of the world and the greatness of Hakadosh Baruch Hu. We hope for our students to gain an appreciation and enjoyment of mathematics, and an awareness of its importance in society and in the development of technology.
More specifically, we hope to develop within each student a level of proficiency in mathematical skills required both in and out of school.
Beginning in the tenth grade, the mathematics curriculum focuses on the topics of the Bagrut exams.
These topics include:
sequences and series
statistics and probably
2 and 3 dimensional trigonometry
differential and integral calculus

The students take three exams; one each at the end of 10th, 11th, and 12th grades. Passing grades on all of these exams is necessary in order to earn an Israeli high school diploma (teudat bagrut).
In preparation for the bagrut exams, we use the Geva series of textbooks, as described here:
