Maths

 

Our numeracy program aims to be a positive, engaging and hands on experience, in which our students develop confidence and a sense of achievement from what they learn. It provides opportunities for students to make connections and apply their mathematical knowledge to the world around them so they can see themselves as mathematicians and successfully participate at school, at home and in the wider community.

The four proficiencies of Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning are fundamental to learning Mathematics and are applied across all three strands of Mathematics; Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry and Statistics and Probability.

 

A range of formative and summative data is used including the Mathematics Online Interview, NAPLAN, PAT maths, Essential Assessments to inform teacher planning. Learning intentions, success criteria and reflections are built into lessons, ensuring that teachers are building on numeracy knowledge that students already possess and targeting teaching to the needs of our students as individuals.
