The learning of Mathematics is essential for assisting children to work mathematically in order to understand and function in the world in which they live. We aim to inspire children to develop an appreciation, understanding and enthusiasm for the study of Mathematics.


Structure of the Mathematics Curriculum
Our study of Mathematics, in line with current Australian Curriculum (AUSVels) , is divided into three main strands:-

  • Number & Algebra
  • Measurement & Geometry
  • Statistics & Probability

 

Approaches to Mathematical teaching and learning
Our classroom teachers provide comprehensive programs which support and challenge students in their mathematical learning. The learning of Mathematics at Montrose involves:-

 

  • Whole class and small group focuses
  • Hands on activity based learning
  • Problem solving
  • Investigations
  • Mathematical challenges
  • Cooperative group work
  • Use of ICT

 

Mathematical Enrichment 

At Montrose Primary School students are provided with many opportunities to extend and enrich their mathematical learning outside the classroom setting, such as:

 

  • Maths Masterclass – problem solving for all ages
  • Maths Talent Quest Project - undertaken in Term 3
  • Australian Mathematics Competition - Term 3

 

 

 

For the 2012 MTQ, Grade 6 students designed Olympic Stadiums and drew them to scale using correct dimensions of the official playing surfaces used in London.
