Welcome to the Mathematics Department
Mathematics and Statistics is a fundamental component of the New Zealand Curriculum. By studying its principles, students gain the analytical and problem-solving skills necessary for future success. Studying Mathematics helps students recognise patterns and create models, enabling them to make sense of scientific, environmental and economic phenomena.
It is our aim to equip our students with the Mathematical skills necessary to make the most of their future. We do our best to ensure that students develop an appreciation of the beauty and order that Mathematics brings to our World as well as gaining the skills to succeed in whatever future path they choose.
Students who have the knowledge and commitment to take their Mathematics to the highest level possible at school are invited to undertake Calculus, Statistics or both at scholarship level and will receive the support they need to succeed.
Our department runs a Maths Help Clinic on a Thursday afternoon from 3:15 to 4:30 for help with homework or classwork.
During the school year, students will have the opportunity to participate in Mathematics competitions.
