Jesuit is a place of intellectual growth. While some people enter their freshman year disliking math, many come to enjoy it by senior year. Moving from algebra 1 and in some cases all the way up to calculus, the Jesuit graduate will see a wide variety of math in his four years. Although many consider math to be confined...
During each period of the day, students file into Hughes Hall, the lecture hall, or the Terry Center, anticipating what kind of presentation they will see next. With the variety of Pi Day presentations, each with their own distinct topic and personality, students never know what to expect. On March 6th, 2015, students and faculty were given the opportunity to learn...
Statistics is everywhere; we just don’t always make an effort to recognize it. Here at Jesuit, the faculty and staff make sure to show their students how statistics in the classroom translates to real world applications. On September 25th-28th, the Jesuit Statistics course took a trip to the Goshute Mountains, about twenty-three miles south of Wendover, Nevada. There, Mrs. Mattacchione and...

This year, in contrast to previous years,...
Flying high over the plains, gliding smoothly in the thin air, the dark Harris's hawk looks across the landscape for its next meal. With unparalleled vision and speed, this predatory bird rules the skies. At the top of the food chain, not threatened by any other animal, the hawk travels serenely. Darting its beady yellow eyes to the right...
Donning their best poker faces, the students in Mrs. Bean and Mrs. Mattachione’s statistics classes have bluffed, called, and raised their way to victory. In a brand new classroom activity, these two statistics teachers have been hoping to teach the seniors in their classes about probability by constructing a casino in their classrooms. Attempting to have a very real and...
Once a year, math classes from Algebra 1 to Honors Calculus file into the Terry Center to observe the wonder that is Pi Day. Pi Day is held once a year, as close to March 14 as scheduling allows, to demonstrate how math can be used in everyday life and in careers. All of Jesuit’s math teachers pitch in to...
