The Numeracy Program follows the Victorian Curriculum, using the content descriptors, achievement standards and work samples to guide curriculum planning. The three strands taught include – Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry and Statistics and Probability.
A whole school approach to the planning and teaching of Numeracy ensures that students are engaged in activities that are meaningful, stimulating and challenging. Team planning for Numeracy occurs at each year level, allowing for consistency of content between grades and challenging learning tasks to be delivered. 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. Additional support and extension programs operate at selected levels.
