Mathematics

When learning maths, students are developing the proficiency strands of Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning in all dimensions of numeracy. Fundamental skills and knowledge are developed using hands on and practical learning activities to enhance student’s understanding of concepts, fluency and proficiency in Mathematics.

The Early and Primary Years models of Numeracy are used to develop understanding from the point of need of each student. This is facilitated by the use of small groups to target skill acquisition through modelled, guided and shared understandings.

The following Maths programs and assessments are offered at Katandra School:

Teaching and learning in maths also incorporates a functional component for the students, extending it to everyday life.
