Mathematics is a creative discipline. The language of mathematics is international. The subject transcends cultural boundaries and its importance is universally recognised. Mathematics has developed over time as a means of solving problems and also for its own sake.
Mathematical thinking is important for all members of a modern society as a habit of mind for its use in the workplace, business and finance; and for personal decision-making. Mathematics is fundamental to national prosperity in providing tools for understanding science, engineering, technology and economics. It is essential in public decision-making and for participation in the knowledge economy.
The department is committed to enhancing learning through the use of ICT. All five mathematics classrooms now have data projectors and two have interactive whiteboards. We subscribe to the MyiMaths.com website which is used both as a teaching resource, as well as a personalised learning tool.
