What is Maths?


Psalm 147:5

"Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit."




Mathematics is the subject that deals with the logic of shape, quantity and arrangement.


Mathematics provides an effective way of building mental discipline and encourages logical reasoning and mental rigor. It is the building block for everything in our daily lives, including mobile devices, computers, software, architecture (ancient and modern), art, money, engineering and even sports. In addition, mathematical knowledge plays a crucial role in understanding the contents of other school subjects such as science, computing, music and art. In short, maths is all around us, in everything we do.
