Numeracy & Mathematics

The mathematics experiences and outcomes are structured within three main organisers, each of which contains a number of subdivisions:

Number, money and measure

  • Estimation and rounding
  • Number and number processes
  • Multiples, factors and primes
  • Powers and roots
  • Fractions, decimal fractions and percentages
  • Money
  • Time
  • Measurement
  • Mathematics – its impact on the world, past, present and future
  • Patterns and relationships
  • Expressions and equations

Shape, position and movement

  • Properties of 2D shapes and 3D objects
  • Angle, symmetry and transformation

Information handling

  • Data and analyses
  • Ideas of chance and uncertainty

Learning in Mathematics enables the children to:

  • develop essential numeracy skills which allow them to participate fully in society
  • understand that successful independent living requires financial awareness, effective money management, using schedules and other related skills
  • interpret numerical information appropriately and use it to draw conclusions, assess risk and make reasoned evaluations and informed decisions
  • apply skills and understanding creatively and logically to solve problems, within a variety of contexts
  • appreciate how the imaginative and effective use of technologies can enhance the development of skills and concepts.
