Maths has become compulsory for all learners.

Core Mathematics is a language that makes use of symbols and notations for describing numerical, geometric and graphical relationships. It is a human activity that involves observing, representing and investigating patterns and qualitative relationships in physical and social phenomena and between mathematical objects themselves. It helps to develop mental processes that enhance logical and critical thinking, accuracy and problem-solving that will contribute to decision-making. Mathematical problem-solving enables us to understand the world (physical, social and economic) around us, and most of all, to teach us to think creatively. Core Mathematics caters predominantly to those learners who wish to study in Maths-related fields.
