Developing numerate students who are confident and foster a love for Mathematics is a high priority at St Benedict’s School. Each of our class teachers are highly trained in integrating the WA Numeracy Curriculum and assessing against the SCASA judging standards, which can both be found at the link below.
Each classroom teacher will instruct the students, in line with the relevant curriculum material. A typical Mathematics class in our school will have a focus on either Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry or Statistics and Probability.
In a number of lessons these strands of learning may intersect with the integration of 21st century learning projects. In building a love of Mathematics, relevance to real life is key, along with an explicit understanding of key developmental numeracy concepts.
