Mathematics involves the development of students’ thinking, understanding, competence and confidence in the application of mathematics.
The four broad strands of Mathematics are:
- Working Mathematically
- Number and Algebra
- Measurement and Geometry
- Statistics and Probability
Values and attitudes operate across all strands and are not attached to special outcomes. Mathematics is a creative activity. When the children are involved in Mathematics at Sacred Heart you will see the children on the floor or at their desks sorting, counting, patterning, trading, recording, measuring and investigating using a wide range of mathematical concrete materials.
In addition, technology, including computers and calculators, are used to assist students.
