IMG 07992Mathematics involves the development of students’ thinking, understanding, competence and confidence in the application of Mathematics. 

There are four broad strands in Mathematics. These include:

  • Working Mathematically
    Students develop understanding and fluency in Mathematics through inquiry, exploring and connecting mathematical concepts, choosing and applying problem-solving skills and mathematical techniques, communication and reasoning
  • Number and Algebra
    Students develop efficient strategies for numerical calculation, recognise patterns, describe relationships and apply algebraic techniques and generalisation
  • Measurement and Geometry
    Students identify, visualise and quantify measures and the attributes of shapes and objects, and explore measurement concepts and geometric relationships, applying formulas, strategies and geometric reasoning in the solution of problems
  • Statistics and Probability
    Students collect, represent, analyse, interpret and evaluate data, assign and use probabilities, and make sound judgements
