Mathematics Past Papers

Mathematics Past Papers

The curriculum for Mathematics is based on the following view of the nature of the discipline.

Mathematics enables creative and logical reasoning about problems in the physical and social world and in the context of Mathematics itself. It is a distinctly human activity practiced by all cultures.


Knowledge in the mathematical sciences is constructed through the establishment of descriptive, numerical and symbolic relationships. Mathematics is based on observing patterns; with rigorous logical thinking, this leads to theories of abstract relations. Mathematical problem solving enables us to understand the world and make use of that understanding in our daily lives.

Mathematics is developed and contested over time through both language and symbols by social interaction and is thus open to change.
