## Mathematics Department

**Mathematics is a multifaceted subject of great beauty and application. The study of math explores some of the deepest puzzles that have ever been encountered and equips students with a universal language used to study quantities and relationships in all fields. Through the study of mathematics, students develop the ability to think logically and abstractly. The problem-solving and computational skills learned are useful for success in any field of study.**
