Mathematics involves students counting, calculating, estimating, recognizing patterns, using fractions, decimals and percentages, as well as, learning about spatial reasoning, and interpreting and drawing conclusions from statistical information. Students use measurement when they are recording, and comparing lengths, mass, area, volume, capacity and time. Our aim is to equip each child with the ability to estimate, problem solve, investigate and reflect as they learn independently and collaboratively with others.
Ongoing assessment, monitoring and evaluating are vital to the planning and teaching of our numeracy program and teachers maintain high expectations of all students. We believe in equality for each student, therefore numeracy teaching is personalised to ensure that each student reaches their full potential.
Students are immersed in purposeful investigations and explicit teaching. They use contemporary tools and a variety of ‘hands on’ resources during their one hour Mathematics block.
