Learning Mathematics gives children and young people access to the wider curriculum and the opportunity to pursue further studies which may lead to careers in fields including science, technology and engineering. It equips us with the skills we need to interpret and analyse information, simplify and solve problems, assess risk and make informed decisions. Mathematics is rich and stimulating and offers learners of all ages the opportunity to solve problems, develop logical reasoning and think creatively, skills which are not only sought after by employers in today’s global economy, but are also essential life skills.

Numeracy is a skill which is deeply rooted in all areas of learning.  In their everyday lives, they will regularly be asked to estimate, use number processes, work with fractions and percentages, manage money and time, make measurements and read information from charts and tables. The Mathematics faculty provides learning experiences and outcomes across Mathematics and Applications of Mathematics.

Albert Einstein: “Mathematics is, in it’s way, the poetry of logical ideas.”
