Mathematics

The study of mathematics allows us to make sense of the world around us. Mathematics develops critical and analytical thinking skills by using real-life situations that appear realistic and appropriate to the student’s development. The abstract nature of the subject does not always allow students to develop conceptual understanding. By providing real-life opportunities students will be able to link previous knowledge with new knowledge and ultimately develop a better understanding of taught concepts. The curriculum design will ensure that students develop mathematical skills through inquiry, enjoyment and enthusiasm for the subject, and by providing opportunities to interact and engage in situations that stimulate connections and allow students to construct meaning for new experiences.
