About the Mathematics Department

The Northwest Vista Math Department strives to educate its students and help them see the value of mathematics as an integrated discipline both in academics and in the real world.


Math Mission

Our mission is to help students do the following:

1) Appreciate the relevance of mathematics, its relationship to other disciplines, and its role, both in society and in their personal lives.

2) Develop the attitude, skills, and knowledge necessary to understand, analyze, and solve practical problems, with a special emphasis on critical-thinking and the application of mathematical techniques.

3) Understand the benefits of cooperative learning and how it can be balanced with independent learning to foster lifelong learning.
