The links between Mathematics and IT are found everywhere.
Both require strong logical and problem solving skills. The links between the subjects have led to the creation of Google, which has changed the nature of the way we access information. The use of computer programming can also allow pupils of any age to tackle complex Mathematical problems. We aim to create independent learners who are able to apply their mathematics in problem solving contexts.
Problem solving is more than routine exercises. It is an important goal. Engaging students in problem-cantered learning will allow students to see connections within and between content areas. Students will develop the ability to employ and select appropriateness of a variety of strategies for designing solutions. Problem-centered learning creates a model where the student becomes the thinker and is engaged in a self-directed search for solutions.
As a core subject, we aim to ensure that learners have strong numerical skills so that they can apply them in subjects such as Physics, Chemistry and Economics.
