Maths at Shavington
Welcome to the Maths at Shavington page!
Mathematics is all around us; it underpins much of our daily lives and our futures as individuals and collectively. As the Secretary of State for Education said last year:
‘... mathematical understanding is critical to our children's future. Our economic future depends on stimulating innovation, developing technological breakthroughs, making connections between scientific disciplines. And none of that is possible without ensuring more and more of our young people are mathematically literate and mathematically confident. Mathematical understanding underpins science and engineering, and it is the foundation of technological and economic progress. As information technology, computer science, modelling and simulation become integral to an ever-increasing group of industries, the importance of maths grows and grows.’
