Mathematics Courses

Since the Creator of the universe is a God of orderliness, a great way to study the process of Creation (as well as other attributes of God) is through the principles of mathematics. Students are exposed to a subject greatly used in our society. Students will learn how to think creatively and analytically. These skills will help them in their decision-making process.

Students are required to complete three (3) credits of Mathematics for graduation.
