At St Paul the Apostle School our aim is to foster a love of Mathematics in an engaging and supportive learning environment. The Mathematics Curriculum is based on the Victorian Curriculum F-10 and is organised into three strands, Number & Algebra, Measurement & Geometry and Statistics & Probability. The proficiencies of understanding, fluency, problem solving and reasoning are regularly assessed.
Mathematics is not just about building student knowledge of processes and procedures. Our aim is to build student understanding of key mathematical concepts, enabling them to transfer their learning from one context to another.
Our thinking culture provides opportunities for our children to develop into powerful mathematical thinkers and learners by building their capacity to see patterns, make connections, think logically, make claims and to reason with evidence. Mathematics is a creative process enabling students to work independently or collaboratively to problem solve. And to articulate their thinking.
