we love math now
“ I took Calculus 1 first semester. The professor called me into his office after the semester exam. He laid all six pages of my exam out on his desk – looked up and said ‘I knew it. I didn’t have to use my red once.’ I got a 100!!!”

Nicole after Semester 1 at Providence College

Hi Mrs. Fitz!!How is everything going?! I miss Fontbonne but love it here at Sacred Heart! I just wanted to let you know that I practically fall asleep every math class because I was beyond prepared by the math classes at Fontbonne. Thank you so much for everything and I hope all is well back at home! Talk to you soon. Take care :-)
