  • Encourage all students to evolve a growth mind-set, rather than a fixed mind-set, regarding their mathematical potential
  • Cultivate a holistic approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics, by developing in every student, the intrinsic mathematical skills of, logical reasoning, estimation, investigation, problem solving and mathematical creativity
  • Dispel the many negative myths that surround mathematics and mathematics education
