At Geelong East Primary School we aim to provide students with a strong grounding in mathematical skills, strategies and understandings. The school ensures each class dedicates at least one hour to Numeracy every day. Mathematics is taught through the dimensions of Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry and Statistics and Probability.
Teachers provide engaging ‘hands on’ tasks and games that take into account students’ ability levels and interests. An important part of our program is that students are provided with the opportunity to develop their understanding, fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills.
Reflection is an integral part of the lesson as it provides time to articulate and share their learning. Students are encouraged to make connections and apply mathematical concepts and real life situations.
