Mathematics

“We only think when confronted with a problem.” John Dewey

 

At St Peter’s Catholic Primary School the aim of Mathematics in Prep - 6 is to enable students to appreciate Mathematics as an essential and relevant part of life and develop their ability to work mathematically.

We encourage positive attitudes towards learning by developing students’ understanding for applying Mathematics effectively to become proficient problem solvers and to value the place of Mathematics in society.

Through our daily Mathematics program students will:

  • Develop a sound understanding of mathematical concepts, processes and strategies and the capacity to use these in solving problems

  • Develop the ability to apply their mathematics to analyse situations and solve real life problems

  • Develop appropriate language for the effective communication of mathematical ideas and experiences

  • Develop an appreciation of the applications to mathematics of technology, including calculators and computers
