Overview

At its most basic level, Mathematics is about understanding patterns, writing rules to describe the patterns and then using them to make predictions. In many ways Mathematics is the language of the universe and unravelling its secrets leads to insight and intrigue, beauty and elegance. Learning Mathematics develops your ability to think logically, to analyse problems and to solve them by breaking them into smaller steps.
