Mathematics

Introduction and benefits

At CGS we work together in the interests of all pupils to create a stimulating mathematical environment that generates enthusiasm amongst our students and provides a positive and enjoyable experience for all.

Mathematics equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. These tools include logical reasoning, problem-solving and number skills, and the ability to think in abstract ways.

Mathematics is important in everyday life, many forms of employment, science and technology, medicine, the economy, the environment and development, and in public decision-making.

Different cultures have contributed to the development and application of Mathematics. Today, the subject transcends cultural boundaries and its importance is universally recognised.

Mathematics is a creative discipline. It can stimulate moments of pleasure and wonder when a pupil solves a problem for the first time, discovers a more elegant solution to that problem, or suddenly sees hidden connections.

Our Aims
