The Math curriculum is built around three content strands: Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, Statistics and Probability. Integrated within the three content areas, classroom programs and teaching seek to build Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning.
In the early years (Kindergarten to Year 2), we lay the foundation for learning mathematics. Students at this level access powerful mathematical ideas relevant to their current lives and learn the language of mathematics.
The middle years of schooling (Years 3 to 6), emphasises the importance of students studying coherent, meaningful and purposeful mathematics that is relevant to their lives. Students still require tactile experiences that allow them to construct key mathematical ideas, but also gradually move to using models, pictures and symbols to represent these ideas.
The teaching of maths at Bambara Primary School is supported by the Oxford Maths program. This program develops students’ knowledge, concepts, skills and processes so they can make meaningful connections with mathematical concepts and the world around them.
