“Without mathematics, there’s nothing you can do. Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers.” ~Shakuntala Devi

It is exactly right! What can we do without math? The Math Department team at NACI is consistently adapting processes that best enable students to understand mathematical concepts that relate to today’s real-world contexts and learn related skills to further enhance their preparation for all post-secondary programs.

We are offering a variety of math courses starting from essential math skills, in support of everyday life living up to the highest academic math level in support of different post-secondary pathways. Our department is actively involved in different mathematical competitions organized by the University of Waterloo.

In today’s digital world, our department is providing the best teaching practices in mastering the necessary educational technology tools and online learning platforms to better accommodate our students’ needs for successful learning experiences.



  • Florence Nightingale Day at the University of Toronto (April 9, 2022)

This is an announcement for all grade 11 and 12 students.

The Department of Statistical Sciences at the University of Toronto and CANSSI (Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute) Ontario is inviting all grade 11 and 12 students to a one-of-a-kind event celebrating data sciences and statistics.
On Saturday, April 9, 2022, students will have the opportunity to participate in Florence Nightingale Day (10 am-2 pm). Students will participate in a range of activities throughout the day to develop their own understanding of statistical concepts through hands-on activities. They will also have an opportunity to take a self-guided tour of the St. George campus.
The university will also host a panel discussion to introduce participants to the ‘nuts and bolts’ of statistics/data sciences. Panelists will speak about their own experience working in different areas of application, potential career paths, and higher education in statistics and data science.
