« Back to Subjects

Mathematics is more than just numbers. It is the exploration and use of patterns and relationships in quantities, space and time. Statistics focuses on patterns and relationships in data. Ākonga are equipped with powerful communication and problem solving tools for investigating, interpreting and making sense of the world. Using symbols, graphs and diagrams to investigate patterns and relationships, ākonga model real-life and hypothetical situations in a range of contexts: social, cultural, scientific, technological, health, environmental and economic. Mathematics and Statistics develops ākonga’s ability to think creatively, critically, strategically and logically. Ākonga also learn to structure, organise, process and communicate information.
