Mathematics in K–6 focuses on developing students’ mathematical understanding, fluency, communication, reasoning and problem-solving through their study of Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. These capabilities enable students to respond to familiar and unfamiliar situations, using strategies to make decisions and solve problems relevant to their further education and everyday lives.
At St James School we believe that…
- Mathematics is a reasoning & creative activity.
- Students will be engaged in open ended tasks & have a positive attitude towards their learning.
- Students will work in flexible groupings.
- Students will have a growth mindset.
Students will have time to reflect on their learning- metacognition.
