Course Outline

The skills, concepts and understandings of the content strands of Number and Algebra, Geometry and Measurement, and Statistics are developed at the appropriate level for each student. The aim is to ensure the girls are numerate, have opportunities to be innovative in solving problems and making decisions, and are able to communicate their findings effectively.

A major emphasis is the teaching of mathematics as a sense making process. This is facilitated through developing understanding and encouraging the students to make informed decisions as to what is the most efficient and appropriate strategy to solve mathematical problems.

The Number framework is used to develop students’ knowledge and strategies. Strong knowledge ensures students can broaden their strategy base across a full range of numbers, while using more advanced strategies helps students to develop knowledge.
