Default Patron saint of mathematicians?

Is there one? I'm going to college this fall and I'm dreading the required mathematics classes I'll have to take. Is there a patron saint of mathematics or mathematicians I can pray to?

Hmmmmm... patron saint of mathematicians? Why, that's an easy one!...

...everyone knows it's gotta be Saint Pi-us!

Ha, ha. St. Albert the Great is the patron saint of mathematicians.
St. Mathew is the patron of accountants.

Is there a prayer to St. Albert the Great to ask him to help me pass my numeracy skills test tomorrow?
