The study of Mathematics should enable students at the primary level to:
- acquire the necessary mathematical skills and learn concepts that will be used in real life situations and related disciplines;
- develop the necessary processes for the acquisition and application of mathematical concepts and skills;
- recognize and integrate mathematical ideas with other disciplines;
- develop positive attitudes toward mathematics;
- make effective use of a variety of mathematical tools (including information and communication technology) in the learning and application of mathematical concepts and skills;
- produce imaginative and creative products arising from mathematical concepts and skills;
- develop the ability to reason logically, communicate mathematically, and learn independently and cooperatively.
Mathematics aids the learner in:
- developing the necessary competencies to function in society
- conceptualizing spatial properties
- gathering and representing data in different ways
- manipulating mathematical ideas and tools
