Mathematics

The Mathematics curriculum focuses on the strands of:

  • Number
  • Patterns and Algebra
  • Data
  • Measurements
  • Space and Geometry.

Mathematics is taught explicitly, with a variety of strategies introduced to solve mental computations. These skills are practised daily with increasing number values as children progress through the stages.

The Mathematics program at Holy Family is underpinned by the Go Maths program, which focuses on working mathematically and applying processing skills to solve problems related to time, measurement and money. Children reflect on and discuss their various approaches to solve problems.

Interactive sites such as Mathletics and Studyladder support learning and allow students to practise skills, compete nationally and internationally with other schools or students and be extended in the concepts being taught.

Each student’s learning is tracked on a numeracy learning continuum, ensuring skills are developed sequentially and paced according to individual need and stage of development.
