AP Math Teacher
Math faculty will develop and execute instructional plans that facilitate scholar mastery of AP and GSE math standards. The Genesis E5 model supports greater possibilities. Faculty will challenge scholars to apply math as a tool to model and solve real-life problems, particularly in Economics and Finance. The result should be scholars who leverage higher-level math skills to better understand the fundamentals of saving, investing, building wealth, and economic decision-making.
The AP teacher should bring to apply a passion for mathematics and high-level inquiry to the development of the yearly course syllabus, readings, and assignments, all geared toward preparing scholars for college-level academic thinking, problem-solving and articulation.
