KS3 Mathematics

You may wonder what connects the mathematics you do in school to the real world. Will you ever have to solve an equation or find an angle outside your classroom? Mathematics is very useful and is everywhere in everyday life. You might not think of buying sweets as algebra or consider the mathematics that went into designing your favourite computer game. However, mathematics is everywhere and what you learn in school will be very important for your future.
