## Maths

Maths is an essential subject in everyday life and allows us to understand the world we live in. Maths is also the universal language through which many other STEM subjects are conveyed. Mathematics sits at the core of most other subjects and is prevalent in areas such as computing, engineering and physics.

Using mathematics enables us to model real-life situations and make connections and informed predictions. It equips us with the skills we need to interpret and analyse information, simplify and solve problems, assess risk and make informed decisions.
