The Math Department at Marin Catholic offers a variety of courses that prepare students for college and beyond. Our curriculum develops critical thinking and problem-solving skills through inductive and deductive reasoning. Using projects and technology along with traditional teaching methodologies, our teachers encourage students to learn independently as well as to interact in groups.

Students with a strong math aptitude are encouraged to take the most rigorous math curriculum available to them. Depending on their grade and teacher recommendations, some students take two math courses in one year.
