Mathematics

The Secondary course aims to develop students’ confidence and enjoyment in doing mathematical activities, gaining knowledge, skills and understanding in certain specified areas and awareness of the place of mathematics in solving problems encountered in everyday life. 

 

All students require:

  • A scientific calculator. (The School Office sells the preferred one for $22)
  • A geometry set

 

The content for Mathematics is structured in five strands.  These strands are Number, Patterns and Algebra, Data, Measurement, and Space and Geometry. Incorporated in all these strands is the strand of Working Mathematically, where students develop their knowledge through inquiry and application of problem-solving strategies including the selection and use of appropriate technology, communication, reasoning and reflection.
