Mathematics

The Mathematics Department does its part to form faith-filled leaders by teaching mathematical principles and theories from a Catholic perspective. Servite's Mathematics department ensures that each student not only understands the material, but also appreciates the complexity of each algorithm and formula. Classtime and assignments are meant to exercise students' analytical and problem-solving skills. The development of these skills will prepare students for post-secondary education, as well as benefit them beyond the classroom.
