Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
St Barnabas and St Paul’s recognises that maths is both a key skill within school, and a life skill to be utilised through everyday experiences. A high-quality Maths education provides a firm foundation for understanding how maths is used in everyday life and develops pupils’ ability to reason mathematically and solve problems.
“Without Mathematics, there is nothing you CAN do.” – Shakuntala Devi.
