Mathematics at St. Mary’s seeks to give students opportunities to use Maths in real world contexts through daily Mathematical activities.
This is achieved through games to develop number sense and mental computation skills, also engaging in problem solving activities, individually and in co-operative groups.
Students are encouraged to
– seek better methods for answering questions
– use concrete materials before recording their Mathematical findings
All students from Year Prep – Year 6 are assessed to determine their growth points in Numeracy. Focus teaching groups are developed based upon the data collected and through ongoing assessments. This ensures programs developed are set to meet individual needs.
