The general aim of the mathematics curriculum is to provide each student with the opportunity to acquire and develop mathematical skills commensurate with his ability. These include basic areas necessary for everyday life in our modern society and topics which are fundamental for studies in a wide variety of disciplines at the college level and in other technical areas.
The courses cover the traditional areas of Algebra and Geometry, as well as advanced topics such as Trigonometry, Probability and Statistics, and Calculus. Our diverse department members employ both traditional and modern teaching techniques. In an effort to keep abreast of technological advancements, students are encouraged to use the graphing calculator, iPAD, iPAD apps, and even traditional software, such as Microsoft Excel. Students will be well prepared for mathematics courses in college after completing the math program here at St. Patrick.
Beginning with the Class of 2018, four credits of mathematics are required for graduation.
