including the provision of a suitable foundation for further study in science

ii) develop a variety of skills in modelling, logical reasoning and problem solving;

iii) encourage student interest and satisfaction through the development and use of

mathematics in a variety of applications;

iv) promote an awareness of the relevance of mathematics to other fields of study and

other practical applications.
