Mathematics – The department where everyone counts!





Lots of people when they think about Maths have the same sort of reaction as shown by Albert Einstein above. For many there is a fear of all things numerical. The Mathematics Department at Lesmahagow High School aim to make your child’s education as relevant, interesting and beneficial to their future as possible.

Mathematics reveals hidden patterns that help us understand the world around us. It is much more than just arithmetic and geometry and is a diverse discipline dealing with data measurements and observations from from the ever changing world around us.

Mathematics is a subject that is appreciated as much for its beauty as for its power. Like  language, religion and music, Mathematics is a universal part of human culture.
