Here’s what else you’re saying about maths!
1 How can maths be creative?
“I can learn about patterns which may help me understand and find creative ways to solve problems.” – Eden, Yr 11
“I enjoy learning new and exciting patterns which apply to the world in unusual forms.” – Noa, Yr 11
“In my opinion, maths is one of the most creative subjects. You are given a relatively basic set of tools to solve complex problems. You can do everything from pure maths, e.g. creating formulas by solving problems with variables, to solving real-life problems or calculating real volumes – all with a basic set of tools.” – Joshua, Yr 12
2 What do you/don’t you like about maths?
“I enjoy maths when it is understandable and we are going at a fair pace. I don’t enjoy maths when we don’t spend enough time on certain parts and then the more difficult stuff is harder to understand.” – David, Year 11
“I like the fact that there are clear rules that can be applied to any equation – no matter how complex. Theoretical maths is also fun.” – Levi R, Year 11
3 How will the maths you’re learning now be used in the real world?
“I do general maths, where we use units like tax, interest, blood alcohol levels and stopping distances. A lot of the things we learn are so applicable to the real world.” – Zac, Year 12
“I’d like to be using my maths skills in the future for software development. Maths provides real-world skills to become a part of the growing technological world.” – Samuel Kantor, Year 12
