Aims and Objectives

The overall curriculum aims of the Mathematics Education Key Learning Area are to develop in students:
  • the ability to think critically and creatively, to conceptualise, inquire and reason mathematically, and to use mathematics to formulate and solve problems in daily life as well as in mathematical contexts and other disciplines;
  • the ability to communicate with others and express their views clearly and logically in mathematical language;
  • the ability to manipulate numbers, symbols and other mathematical objects;
  • number sense, symbol sense, spatial sense, measurement sense and the capacity to appreciate structures and patterns;
  • a positive attitude towards the learning of mathematics and an appreciation of the aesthetic nature and cultural aspects of mathematics.
