Mathematics

At St Monica's we believe Mathematics is essential for living. Some aspects of Mathematics are required by individuals in order to function adequately as members of society. These aspects include strategic planning, skills and techniques and involved in understanding and applying number, choosing and using measures, computation, problem-solving and reasoning. The study of Mathematics therefore provides support for concurrent learning in other essential learning areas and builds a sound foundation for further mathematical education.

 

At St. Monica's we

 develop in students the ability to:

- understand and apply number,

- choose and use measures,

- recognise and represent patterns and relationships.

 

Mathematics lessons occur each day from Kindergarten to Year Six for 60 minutes. All students are tested at the commencement and conclusion of each year, using a range of diagnostic testing tools. Ongoing assessment occurs at various stages throughout the term.  All students have use of technology to enhance their learning.
