Mathematics  Curriculum Vision 

Mathematics at All Saints is all around us. It is beautiful and relevant. The consistency and intrinsic truth of mathematics reflect the nature of God. Mathematics teaches a depth and rigour of thinking and communicating that is not found in any other discipline, and is essential for all aspects of life. Through mathematics we learn to appreciate structure and pattern.
