Why do students study Mathematics
Mathematics is essential because it is one of the most widely used subjects in the world. Every career and pathways needs some sort of Mathematics. It helps the mind to reason and change complicated situations or problems into clear, simple, and logical steps. Students are encouraged to discuss different ways of tackling problems, to explain and justify their explanations to challenge their thinking.
