Mathematics involves the development of students’ thinking, understanding, competence and confidence in the application of mathematics.
- Working Mathematically
- Patterns and Algebra
- Measurement and Data
- Space and Geometry
Mathematics incorporates the processes of questioning, reflecting, reasoning and proof. It is a powerful tool for problem solving. Students’ numeracy and underlying mathematical understanding will be enhanced through engagement with a variety of applications of mathematics to real-world situations and problems in other key learning areas.
Mathematics is based on student centred activities which consists of hands-on resources, group work, mental computation, higher order thinking skills, reflecting on learning, questioning students’ understanding, and assessment for learning.
