The aim of this area of study at HCK is to develop confident communicators of Mathematics. Through engagement in challenging experiences students will develop an increasingly sophisticated understanding of mathematical concepts.
- develop understanding and fluency in Mathematics through inquiry, exploring and connecting mathematical concepts, choosing and applying problem-solving skills and mathematical techniques, communication and reasoning
- develop efficient strategies for numerical calculation, recognise patterns, describe relationships and apply algebraic techniques and generalisation
- identify, visualise and quantify measures and the attributes of shapes and objects, and explore measurement concepts and geometric relationships, applying formulas, strategies and geometric reasoning in the solution of problems
- collect, represent, analyse, interpret and evaluate data, assign and use probabilities, and make sound judgements.” (Mathematics Syllabus K-10, p.16)
