Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline. It is essential to everyday life; critical to science, technology and engineering and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
