Students at St Edward’s are encouraged to engage with Mathematics as a way of exploring the world around them, be it mathematics in nature or art, applying numerical skills to real life situations such as the inequitable distribution of wealth around the world and to identify the powerful role of mathematics in the development of civilisation, modern industry, science and technology. Through our teaching we aim to teach students logical thinking, quantitative thinking, spatial thinking, generalised representation of relationships.
The New South Wales syllabuses for the Australian Mathematics curriculum content contains the following strands:
Working Mathematically
Students develop understanding and fluency in mathematics through inquiry, exploring and connecting mathematical concepts, choosing and applying problemsolving skills and mathematical techniques, communication and reasoning
Number and Algebra
Students develop efficient strategies for numerical calculation, recognise patterns, describe relationships and apply algebraic techniques and generalisation
Measurement and Geometry
Students identify, visualise and quantify measures and the attributes of shapes and objects, and explore measurement concepts and geometric relationships, applying formulas, strategies and geometric reasoning in the solution of problems.
Statistics and Probability
Students collect, represent, analyse, interpret and evaluate data, assign and use probabilities, and make sound judgements
