**OVERVIEW**

General mathematics aims to hone the skills of students in dealing with operations on real numbers. Fun facts about the applications of these abstract topics in this subject will be covered like day to day use of mathematics in cooking, carpentry etc.

This subject is designed for students who want to extend their mathematical skills whose future studies or employment pathways do not require calculus. It incorporates a practical approach that equips learners for their needs as future citizens. Students will learn to ask appropriate questions, map out pathways, reason about complex solutions, set up models and communicate in different forms. They will experience the relevance of mathematics to their daily lives, communities and cultural backgrounds. They will develop the ability to understand, analyse and take action regarding social issues in their world. When students gain skill and self-assurance, when they understand the content and when they evaluate their success by using and transferring their knowledge, they develop a mathematical mindset
