Mathematics Learning @ Mangapapa
Mathematics & Statistics Learning:
Mathematics is about exploring patterns and relationships in quantities, space and time.
Statistics is about exploring and using patterns and relationships in data.
Our aim is for Mangapapa learners to make sense of and use mathematics effectively at home, at work and in the community.
What do we want for our learners?
To develop the ability to think creatively, critically, strategically and logically.
To process and communicate information.
To enjoy intellectual challenge.
To be able to predict outcomes, to conjecture, to justify and verify, to seek patterns and generalisations.
To estimate with reasonableness, calculate with precision and to understand when results are precise and when they must be interpreted with uncertainty.
