Mathematics

At St Paul Apostle South, we believe Mathematics is a key life skill and therefore a priority learning area. All students can be successful mathematicians. Our goal is to create an environment that promotes a love of maths, encourages risk taking with high expectations for all students.

We aim to provide:

  • quality opportunities for all children to experience success
  • a contemporary approach to the teaching of Mathematics
  • focussed, explicit teaching to allow all children to succeed in maths
  • specific materials and resources to support all students in their mathematical learning
  • ongoing, authentic feedback for all learners
  • pre and post testing to assess the strengths and challenges of every individual child
  • opportunities for all students to explain their mathematical thinking and understandings.

At St Paul Apostle South, we are working towards all students becoming independent mathematical thinkers and problem solvers.
