Mathematics is the means of looking at patterns that make up our world. Spotting the intricate and beautiful ways in which they are constructed and realised. Numeracy is the means of making that knowledge useful. 


Mathematics contributes to the school curriculum by developing learner's abilities to calculate, reason logically, algebraically and geometrically, to solve problems and handle data. It is also important in everyday living, in many forms of employment and in public decision making.
