Mathematics programs are in harmony with the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) K-10 Syllabus requirements and aim to develop student’s understanding and fluency through inquiry, exploring and connecting mathematical concepts, choosing and applying problem-solving skills and reasoning.
Through planned opportunities to explore, discover, describe and record relationships, patterns and processes, children’s understanding of Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability are sequentially developed.
Teachers strive to challenge each student to achieve at the highest level they are capable of and to plan problem-solving and investigative activities to stimulate childrens’ curiosity and enjoyment of Mathematics. A main emphasis is placed on understanding the key strands and the acquisition of language and skills for effective communication of mathematical ideas and experiences. The use of concrete materials is widespread throughout the Mathematics program.
