Mathematics

The Mathematics Department offers the full range of curriculum courses as outlined in the Australian Curriculum. Math courses aim to create confidence and enjoyment in doing mathematical activities. Students develop an awareness of how maths can be used to solve problems in everyday life. They also learn of its contribution to the development of society.

Students in Years 7 and 8 are placed in integrated Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) classes.

Students in Years 9 and 10 are placed into classes for Mathematics based on their performance in the prior school year. Classes are taught in either the Extension or Mainstream mathematics courses.

There is a strong emphasis on Algebraic concepts in the Extension courses to study the full Year 10A Australian Curriculum in preparation for the Specialist Mathematics and Mathematical Methods courses in Years 11 and 12. These courses require a high level of understanding of algebraic concepts in preparation for Calculus.

The Mathematics faculty works closely with the Inclusive Education team to meet the learning needs of all students through extra support and differentiated programs.

Students are offered opportunities to participate in many enrichment activities including the Australian Mathematics Competition, the Computational and Algorithmic Challenge, the Australian Mathematics Olympiad, ICAS Mathematics and Australian Informatics Competitions.

We have recently had teams participate in Maths Days for Year 10 and the ANU Maths Day for Year 12. Students in recent years have been selected to participate in the ANU Enrichment maths program and the ANU College Specialist Mathematics Extension course.

Additional support

We also offer additional support to students who struggle with Mathematics or would like to extend their understanding at Maths tutorials. Maths tutorials are currently offered on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday each week.
