Mathematics

Overview

The study of math goes beyond numbers and equations. You will learn to problem solve; communicate complex ideas; and create, understand, and critique arguments—all critical skills that will prepare you to work in any job.

Students need to equip themselves with essential mathematical knowledge and skills but most importantly, with the ability and attitude to continue on their own learning. The development of mathematical knowledge is a gradual process. Students need to display a consistent and committed effort in order to  help students recognize the underlying principles of mathematics.

Using a variety of instructional, assessment and evaluation strategies, teachers provide numerous opportunities for students to develop skills of inquiry, reasoning, problem solving and communication as they investigate and learn fundamental concepts. Opportunities to relate knowledge and skills to these wider contexts – to the goals and concerns of the world in which they live – will motivate students to learn and to become lifelong learners.
