"Maths" is the English term and only in general usage in the UK, btw.

Later, in Maths — a loathsome subject for many reasons, the main one being that the Cruickshank brothers attended the same class — he slipped out the console and turned down the volume wheel.

In particular, Alevel Maths is really essential for almost all science and engineering and social sciences as well, yet too many students at age 16 just don't realise that and aren't told it, and quite wrongly dismiss it as "useless" or "irrelevant".

Maths is the abbreviation of mathematics, which of course keeps the “s” for consistency as it is still a plural, something which is lost in the inconsistent US abbreviation.

Maths is a “skill to a purpose”, and we would should ponder the purpose before overselling the skill.

I remember one guy with a master degree in Maths who was positively useless.

As part of your teacher qualification, you have to take the QTS Skills tests in Maths, English, and ICT.

They say that you just have to love the subject and be keen to learn and you should be fine coz Maths is just a skill.

J.Kent commented on the word Maths
There is a United States tutoring site called 'wyzant' that actually uses the word maths rather than 'math'. Having reviewed the ever excellent site, wordnik, I get it that 'Maths' is correct; therefore I learned something! However, since the word simply is not used in American English, is this sort of dumb? Yes.. I have a life, but you know how it is to be a language person. It never sleeps...

see maths it probably sounds different because the British use 'maths', North America usually says 'Math', but the word is short for mathematics which ends in a s.

Umm, they can use whatever they want. 'Flickr' is not a 'correct' word either but it's understandable.
