Math at Vistamar

The mathematics program โ€œVistaMathโ€, is based on the integrated, problem-based approach developed at Phillips Exeter Academy. We believe that problem solving skills like dissecting a problem, recognizing familiar challenges, exploring and generalizing, and making conjectures and proving them, are essential to the development of mathematical and critical thinking skills.
