Mathematics Department Overview

  • The study of mathematics is an integral component of a variety of academic and vocational disciplines. All mathematics curricula were redesigned in 2016 to meet the various needs of Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School students to prepare them for MCAS 2.0, PSAT/SAT, and Accuplacer in accordance with NCTM and Common Core guidelines. Graduates who are continuing their education by enrolling in a two year or four year institution, enlisting in the military, or entering the workforce will be well prepared for the future after completing the comprehensive four year mathematics program.

  • Diman fills up on pi

    Pi. It’s the transcendental number “3.14…” used to calculate the area, perimeter, and volume of circles and cylinders. Every year, math departments and enthusiasts celebrate “Pi Day” on March 14 (3/14), but this year’s celebration will be bigger, because the date will be 3/14/15, which corresponds to the next two digits of pi (3.1415) and only happens once a century.
