Mathematics is all around us, in everything we do. It is the building block for everything in our daily lives, including mobile devices, architecture (ancient and modern), music, art, money, engineering, sports and even a game of Fortnite. A good knowledge of mathematics will help you to understand current issues and develop transferable skills needed throughout life.
