Why learn mathematics?

We were very fortunate to welcome Prof. Frederick K.S. Leung as part of our Coffee Morning series to talk about the significance of learning mathematics.

Through this accessible and insightful presentation, Prof. Leung made the key point that mathematics is a way of thinking and communicating – skills that remain with students for life. He emphasized the importance of creating lifelong learners of mathematics, intellectual curiosity and enthusiasm while explain that process and working is more significant than reaching the solution.
