Learning
Mathematics

 

The Year 7 Mathematics course aims to equip students with useful mathematical and numeracy skills. Students are assisted to see mathematical connections and be able to apply mathematical concepts, skills and processes in posing and solving mathematical problems.

Students who have difficulty with mathematics may be eligible for the Everyday Mathematics class which is generally smaller in size and works at a pace that is better suited to students who struggle with mathematical concepts.

Higher ability students may be eligible for the Extension Math class.

Math Help is offered throughout the week at various times to further support student learning.
