# Mathematics

Mathematics is human beings’ attempt to understand, represent and process the world in which we live with precision and rigour. Students are at the centre of this world, inquisitive and curious, questioning and sceptical, seeking explanations to the meaning of what represents Mathematics. In trying to understand the connection between Mathematics and the world, students need to be able to derive the relationship that exists between seemingly distinct and disparate conditions.

These relationships, trends or patterns can be hypothesised through prediction, observation, analysis and evaluation.

Hence, the SST Mathematics programme helps students understand how mathematical modelling can be used to better understand the world around us and how these relationships can be succinctly expressed through mathematical equations.
