With courses in engineering, robotics and programming, in addition to traditional math subjects, Central Catholic takes a hands-on approach with students, encouraging them to use their math skills to solve real-world problems.
Central Catholic's prides itself on providing a well-rounded approach to mathematical learning, including teaching students the principles and tools of mathematics and logic. The Mathematics Department affords the opportunity to model real-world problems in business, science, engineering, economics, architecture, and other disciplines. In addition, the department seeks to encourage its students to think clearly, precisely, concisely, and with awareness that mathematics and science can help explain the workings of the known universe. Ultimately, the department hopes the exploration of the universe’s marvelous complexities can lead to a sense of wonder and, in turn, to a greater appreciation of God’s presence.
Advanced Placement courses in Statistics, Calculus and Computer Science and honors courses in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Computer Science afford the opportunity for high-achieving students to achieve their full potential.
