The study of Mathematics provides a foundation for the learning of science, technology, and for the interpretation of quantitative information in other subjects. It teaches students how to reason logically and develop skills useful in everyday life.
Greater understanding of mathematics will be essential for today's students for them to be successful in tomorrow's job market. Students will need to be proficient in:
- understanding mathematics
- computing fluently
- applying concepts to solve problems
- reasoning logically
- engaging in mathematics to make sense of it
The Department of Teaching & Learning supports schools as they work collaboratively to continuously improve knowledge and skills necessary for effective mathematics instruction, including the use of appropriate assessments to inform practice.
