Mathematics

"Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about understanding." – William Paul Thurston

 

At the Castries Comprehensive Secondary School, we are dedicated to enhancing students understanding of the world through the study of Mathematics. Through the study of Mathematics, students learn to develop reasoning, problem solving, logic and critical thinking skills. Students learn to transfer and apply these skills in all areas of study and all aspects of their lives. 

 

We endeavour to:

  • demonstrate the role Mathematics plays in all other subject areas
  • help students develop a natural love and curiosity for Mathematics
  • create opportunities for students to develop their creativity through developing their own problem solving techniques
  • inspire and motivate students to extend their own understanding through exploration of Mathematics concepts
