Mathematics is a creative and inter-connected discipline and provides solutions to some intriguing problems. It is also essential to everyday life, and critical to science, technology and engineering. A good mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, and the ability to reason mathematically.
Mathematics is taught daily from Year 1 to Year 6 in a way that ensures confidence and accuracy when using numbers in increasingly complex activities. In addition, an understanding of the wider associated topics such as measurement, shape and handling of data is taught.
Students are introduced to topics such as geometry and algebra to solve a variety of challenges and problems related to real life situations. In doing so, they are inspired to be involved with the world around them through Maths. Mental strategies are learnt on a daily basis in warm-up activities to each lesson.
