Description

Mathematics is a language that makes use of symbols and notations for describing numerical, geometric and graphical relationships. It is a human activity that involves observing, representing and investigating patterns and qualitative relationships in physical and social phenomena, as well as between mathematical objects themselves. It helps to develop mental processes that enhance logical thinking, accuracy and problem solving. Mathematical problem solving enables us to understand the world (physical, social and economic) around us, and, most of all, to teach us to think creatively.

Learning Aims:

Learners are guided towards developing the following knowledge, skills and attitudes:

1. To develop fluency in computation skills without relying on the use of calculators
2. Mathematical modelling is an important focal point of the curriculum.
3. To provide the opportunity to develop within learners, the ability to be methodical, to generalize, make conjectures and try to justify or prove them
4. To be able to understand and work with the number system
5. To show Mathematics as a human creation by including the history of Mathematics
6. To develop problem-solving and cognitive skills. Teaching is not limited to “how”, but rather features the “when” and “why” of problems
7. Ensure a good understanding of learning procedures and proofs, as well as why they are important
8. To prepare the learners for further education and training as well as the world of work
