Maths is considered one of the Core skills and as such is important, not only in education, but also in work and many personal situations.
Possession of Core skills allows people to use the knowledge and understanding they have to good effect and helps them to put what they learn in one subject into action in other aspects of learning.
The Mathematics department are able to offer courses from National 3 through to Advanced Higher for those wish to progress to study a variety of subjects at College or University.
Courses in the early stages of study are designed to encourage student participation which illustrates the need for what is being learned and which sees maths as arising out of real or realistic contexts which students can appreciate.
Course Text books have been chosen for coursework at all levels and provision for overlap between levels has been built into course arrangements.
- STEM Camp: All Higher pupils have been given the chance to attend this STEM Camp 2k17. See Miss Ness for further details.
- Enterprising Maths Competition: Well done to the 4 pupils who took part in this year's Enterprising Maths Comepetition at Meadowbank Stadium. Although we didn't win, the team did very well (beating Mr Taylor's old school!) and had a great time. Thank you to Mrs Murphy who organised the team and the trip.
