Mathematics is important in our everyday life, allowing us to make sense of the world around us and to manage our lives. Using mathematics enables us to model real-life situations and make connections and informed predictions. It equips us with the skills we need to interpret and analyse information, simplify and solve problems, assess risk and make informed decisions.
Digital devices are all around us and they'll play a huge part in our future, from helping us to diagnose and treat illness, to assisting referees in sports, to recording and transmitting the latest information and news.
Scotland has a strong tradition of excellence and innovation in technological research. Scotland's people need to be skilled in technologies and to be aware of the impact of technologies on society and the environment, now and in the future. Learning in the technologies provides a strong foundation for the development of skills and knowledge which are, and will continue to be, essential in maintaining Scotland's economic prosperity.
