Maths is important in all our lives

Maths is important in all our lives – when we’re shopping, checking payslips and tax, calculating a shared bill or cutting a cake into the correct number of portions. When we’re at work we use Maths all the time too – proportions of chemicals for hair dye for a hairdresser, numbers of bricks for a builder, the surface area of a floor for a joiner, pipe lengths for a plumber as well as the calculations an engineer has to make to ensure a structure is secure and stable.
