Mathematics Learning Leader

From its origins in counting and measuring, mathematics has evolved in highly sophisticated and elegant ways to become the language now used to describe many aspects of our world today. In the Mathematics Domain, we look to develop your mathematical and literacy skills for everyday life, work and assist you in becoming active and critical citizens in a technological world. You learn to see connections and apply mathematical concepts, skills and processes to pose and solve problems in mathematics and in a range of contexts. As you progress through your mathematical studies you are able to follow a pathway which is more suited to your needs, aspirations and interests.
