Mathematics provides students with access to important mathematical ideas, knowledge and skills that they will draw on in their personal and work lives.
The students develop mathematical understanding, fluency, reasoning, modelling and problem-solving, as well as gain an understanding of the relationship that Mathematics has with the other learning areas of the curriculum.
The Mathematics Curriculum covers: Number, Measurement and Geometry and Statistics and Probability.
Equally important are the essential roles of algebra, functions and relations, logic, mathematical structure and working mathematically.
The Mathematics curriculum aims to ensure that students:
develop useful mathematical and numeracy skills for everyday life, work and as active and critical citizens in a technological world
see connections and apply mathematical concepts, skills and processes to pose and solve problems in mathematics and in other disciplines and contexts
acquire specialist knowledge and skills in mathematics that provide for further study in the discipline
appreciate mathematics as a discipline – its history, ideas, problems and applications, aesthetics and philosophy.
