“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 towards successful learning experiences.
