Not only is maths important for a variety of careers, it is also a fundamentally important life skill. From budgeting to baking, some degree of mathematical ability is important for us all.”Speaking about the role of schools during Maths Week, Mr Gill said: “Every year we are impressed with the creativity shown by primary and post-primary teachers around the island in their efforts to engage and entertain their pupils during Maths Week. That effort will have an enormous impact in encouraging young people to have greater confidence in their ability to do well at maths”.
