Mathematics

Maths aims to equip every individual for life with the knowledge, skills and deeper understanding of mathematical concepts. Maths helps to think analytically and have a better vision and improved quantitative reasoning ability about the world around us. It helps us to solve problems and look for solutions. Furthermore, it creates curiosity about the inner, individual world of imagination and possibility. Therefore, students at Grove Academy will be able to bring their enhanced mathematical understanding and skills, to bear on different aspects of their life.
