Mathematics

 

Mathematical ideas and uses have evolved across all cultures over thousands of years, and are constantly developing.  The Australian Curriculum: Mathematics provides students with essential mathematical skills and knowledge in Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry and Statistics and Probability.  It develops the numeracy capabilities that all students need in their personal, work and civic life, and provides the fundamentals on which mathematical specialties and professional applications of mathematics are built.

The curriculum focuses on developing increasingly sophisticated and refined mathematical understanding, fluency, logical reasoning, analytical thought and problem-solving skills.  It is a structured and rigorous, yet carefully paced in-depth study of critical skills and concepts.  The aim of our school’s mathematics curriculum is to help students become confident, numerate learners who are able to logically apply a range of techniques, concepts and strategies in inquiry and problem-solving situations in everyday life as well as school-based experiences.​
