Maths Week is an important way to help learners, of all ages, enjoy maths and to highlight the creativity of the subject.

Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin, assistant professor, UCD and science communicator

Basic maths is hugely important when it comes to success in the kitchen. There is a lot of science and maths in cooking and you can’t ignore them. Maths wouldn’t have been my favourite subject in school, but I didn’t realise how important it was at the time.

Donal Skehan, food writer & TV presenter

Mathematics is essential for disciplines such as science, technology, engineering and finance. However, we should also remember that mathematics promotes the ability to think rationally, analyse and solve problems, and process data clearly and accurately.
