NUMERACY

The Numeracy Program follows the Australian Curriculum, using the content descriptors, achievement standards and work samples as guides. The three strands taught include – Numberand Algebra, Measurement and Geometry and Statistics and Probability.

A whole school approach to teaching Numeracy ensures that students are engaged in activities that are meaningful, stimulating and challenging. Team planning for Numeracy occurs within each year level, allowing for consistency of content between grades. The use of hands on materials, games, open ended tasks, investigative work and problem solving activities that relate to real life occur throughout the program. Within lessons, tasks are differentiated providing opportunities for students to learn at their own level. Existing technologies support the learning and applications of mathematics, with all students having access to the online program, Mathletics, at school and at home.
