Course Information
Mathematics is important in everyday life, allowing us to make sense of the world around us and to manage our lives. 

Using mathematics enables us to model real-life situations and make connections and informed predictions. It equips us with the skills we need to interpret and analyse information, simplify and solve problems, assess risk and make informed decisions.

The Course aims to:
  • Motivate and challenge learners by enabling them to select and apply
  • Straightforward mathematical skills in a variety of mathematical and real-life situations
  • Develop confidence in the subject and a positive attitude towards further study in mathematics
  • Enable the use of numerical data and abstract terms and develop the idea of generalisation
  • Allow learners to interpret, communicate and manage information in mathematical form; skills which are vital to scientific and technological research and development
  • Develop the learner’s skills in using mathematical language and to explore straightforward mathematical ideas
  • Develop skills relevant to learning, life and work in an engaging and enjoyable way
