Mathematics

In line with the Australian Curriculum, we believe that students should be confident with the mathematics that is used in the "real world" and our curriculum is based on the three content and four proficiency strands in the Australian curriculum, ensuring students' proficiency in mathematical skills become increasingly sophisticated over the years of schooling.

The content strands are Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. The proficiency strands are Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning.

The following Sub-strands support the sequential development of concepts:

Number and Algebra

  • Number and Place Value
  • Fractions and decimals
  • Real Numbers
  • Money and financial Mathematics
  • Patterns and Algebra
  • Linear and non-linear relationships

Measurement and Geometry

  • Units of Measurement
  • Shape
  • Location and Transformation
  • Pythagoras and trigonometry

Statistics and Probability

  • Chance
  • Data Representation and Interpretation

All units of work are differentiated according to the learning ability of the students.
