At St. Dominic’s we aim to develop each student’s understanding, skills and strategies inMathematics so that they can confidently use Maths in their everyday lives. We use the Victorian Curriculum, student assessment and data to target our Mathematics teaching and learning.
We believe an effective Mathematics program:
uses a variety of teaching strategies and activity types
places a strong emphasis on problem solving and regularly challenges students to engage with unfamiliar problems
uses hands on materials and visuals to support student understanding
promotes learning through collaboration and discussion with peers
encourages students to be active learners and develop understandings and make connections for themselves
provides intervention and extension to students who have been identified as needing additional support
encourages and assists parents to support their child’s Mathematics learning at home.
