The aim of mathematics education is to prepare students to:

  • communicate and reason mathematically
  • use estimation and mental mathematics, where appropriate
  • reason and justify their thinking
  • select and use appropriate technologies as tools to solve problems
  • connect mathematical ideas to other concepts in mathematics, everyday experiences and to other subjects
  • appreciate and value mathematics as an integral component of society.

  • Mathematical skills are recognized in Catholic schools as valuable and necessary tools that serve both personal growth and the world order. Applied to the Christian vocation to build a world of integrity, justice and dignity for all, abstract mathematical skills serve to make it possible for us to better understand our present reality, make responsible choices regarding the future, and perceive the impact of our behaviour and decisions on ourselves, others and the world. Mathematics reflects the genius of the mathematicians who, through the centuries, have developed this largely abstract science. The product of these minds is also a reflection of the glory of God fully alive, in not only the mathematicians but in those who learn from them.
