At St Therese’s we aim to develop the numeracy of our students that will equip them for their future lives.  The concepts that are covered are grouped into three strands:

  • Number and Algebra
  • Measurement and Geometry
  • Statistics and Probability

The mathematical proficiencies of reasoning, problem-solving, fluency and understanding are highlighted by the content and method of delivery of the Victorian Mathematics curriculum.

We achieve this by:

  • Developing a sense of enjoyment of Mathematics through games and hands-on learning
  • Providing open-ended investigations that require students to apply content knowledge to solve multi-step problems
  • Differentiate tasks through the use of enabling and extending prompts
  • Provide ample opportunities for students to discuss and articulate their learning
  • Using digital technologies to enhance mathematical learning
  • Building students vocabulary knowledge to effectively communicate mathematical ideas
  • Using pre and post-assessment tasks to plot student progress and highlight the direction for teacher instruction
