Mathematics is a subject that teaches learners to think logically, critically and at times "out of the box". Simply put, maths is about solving problems.
When students are posed with a challenging problem to solve, the age old question is asked, "When am I ever going to use this in real life?"
Mathematics empowers students to persevere when faced with challenging problems. It encourages new pathways in the brain, thus resulting in a more alert and open minded student.
The Mathematics Department strives to:
- create attentive and persistent Mathematicians
- create resourceful, self-sustained and mature students
- provide a positive and supportive learning environment

Mathletics for iPad is now available on the Apple App Store. It is now even easier to make use of this resource sponsored by the North West Shelf Project. We encourage all our Junior School students to spend at least 10 minutes a day on Mathletics to sharpen their Mathematics skills - Mrs Hill
