The Mathematics department at St John Fisher aspires to the highest standards of excellence in teaching and learning for all our students.
We will be a source for the promotion of problem solving, analytical thinking and utilizing technology. We will produce high quality mathematical thinking students that are well prepared to enter the work force or aspire to higher education.
We live in a mathematical world where if we decide on a purchase, choose an insurance or health plan, or use a spreadsheet we rely on mathematical understanding. The World Wide Web, CD-Roms and other media disseminate vast quantities of quantitative information. The level of mathematical thinking and problem solving needed in the workplace has increased dramatically over the years.
In such a world those who understand and can do mathematics will have opportunities that others do not. Mathematical competence opens doors to productive futures. A lack of mathematical competence closes those doors.
Students have different abilities, needs and interests yet everyone needs to use mathematics in his or her personal life, workplace and in further study. At St John Fisher we believe that all students deserve an opportunity to understand the power and beauty of mathematics and embrace it into their lives.
THIS IS OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE.
