Why learn Maths?

Studying maths helps us find patterns and structure in our lives. Practically, maths helps us work with money, create graphics, design websites, build skyscrapers and generally understand how things work or predict how they might change over time.

It could be said that mathematics is fundamental in the education of children since maths teaches them to think. It develops our reasoning, helping us to think quickly and analytically and its use can be applied in your day to day life. If you are able to understand mathematics and arrive at logical solutions, you will be able to solve real life problems.

Maths is so much more than just a compulsory subject – the career possibilities can be endless. The benefits that having a good understanding of maths can provide students in the future, such as a bigger college choice and a better paying job in their profession, are endless.

Mathematics is essential in a world of constant change. Mathematics appears in art, music, science, engineering, statistics, education, technology and more. New technologies are changing the way we work and live and mathematics can be very useful in understanding how and why things work the way they work. The combination of a skills shortage and a growing need for maths skills means more and more employers are on the lookout for budding mathematicians!
