LRHSD Math Pathways

More Options for Today's Learners

  • Beginning with the 2024-2025 school year, Lenape Regional High School District students have a new and exciting opportunity to choose a math pathway based on their interests and future plans. We are proud to broaden the range of classes available and provide access to rigorous content and quality instruction for all of our students.

    We will continue to offer the traditional math pathway, now called the Calculus Pathway. This will prepare students who are interested in career paths such as science, technology, engineering, math, business, or pre-med. The LRHSD’s traditional Calculus Pathway has seen tremendous success in preparing students for college and university programs.

    Recently, the world of data has exploded with technological advances in the ways we collect and use information. In response, we have created the Data Science Pathway. The latest research shows that 21st-century careers require exposure to data science, statistics and computer science. Data is an integral part of every industry, and we believe exposure to data science is worthwhile for every student. 

    When considering the new Data Science Pathway, students should consider college prerequisites but know that many colleges and universities - including Harvard - are recognizing the value and rigor of classes other than Calculus.

  • All students will start with Algebra 1 and Geometry. Students are able to choose between the two different Pathways starting with their Algebra 2 course. All students must take Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2.

    Students interested in the Calculus Pathway should take Algebra 2 Functions. If a student wants to continue with the Data Science Pathway they will take Algebra 2 Data Science.
