Mathematics

What is Mathematics about?

In the junior years the essential content for Mathematics is structured using one process strand

  • Working Mathematically

and three content strands

  • Number and Algebra
  • Measurement and Geometry
  • Statistics and Probability

The aim is to develop students’ mathematical thinking, understanding, competence and confidence in the application of mathematics, their creativity, enjoyment and appreciation of the subject, and their engagement in lifelong learning.

How will I be taught Mathematics?

Students will develop knowledge, understanding and skills in Mathematics through discovery, practice and the use of technology.

Students also have the opportunity to move through classes to an extension level.

Each year the students in the top classes are challenged by sitting the Australian Mathematics Competition, many receiving Distinction and Credit certificates.
