The study of mathematics is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10. 

By studying mathematics, students learn to work mathematically – developing fluency, understanding, problem-solving, reasoning and communication skills.

The syllabus consists of the following strands:

  • number and algebra
  • measurement and geometry
  • statistics and probability.

At Faulconbirdge Public School, we aim to:

  • create favourable attitudes towards mathematics and stimulate students' interest in mathematics.
  • develop in students a sound understanding of mathematical concepts, processes and strategies and the capacity to use these in solving problems.
  • develop in students the ability to recognise the mathematics in everyday situations.
  • develop in students the ability to apply their mathematics to analyse situations and solve real-life problems.
  • develop in students appropriate language for the effective communication of mathematical ideas and experiences.
  • develop in students an appreciation of the applications to mathematics of technology, including calculators and computers.
  • encourage students to use mathematics creatively in expressing new ideas and discoveries and to recognise the mathematical elements in other creative pursuits.
  • challenge students to achieve at a level of accuracy and excellence appropriate to their particular stage of development.
