In mathematics, students learn to use ideas about Number & Algebra, Measurement & Geometry and Statistics and Probability to describe, interpret and reason about their social and physical world. Mathematics plays a key role in the development of students’ numeracy and assists learning across the curriculum.
At Mary Mackillop CCPS our teachers embrace a “hands-on” approach, using explicit teaching strategies in the teaching of mathematics. Teachers attempt to differentiate their teaching and learning program in math to allow progress at all levels. A support program is offered to all students who may experience difficulties in the learning of mathematics.
Opportunities also exist for very capable mathematicians to excel in this learning area. These include; International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS), The Australian Mathematics Competition, Maths Club and mathematics units in our Enrichment Programme.
