At Holy Spirit our Mathematics curriculum aims to help students to become confident users of Maths and efficient problem solvers.
We use assessment data extensively to drive our learning and teaching in Mathematics and we aim to meet students’ individual needs through smaller class groupings, focused, explicit teaching and rich, ‘hands-on’ learning experiences.
We use the Australian Curriculum adapted for Victorian Schools (AusVELS) to inform our teaching and assessment of learning. AusVELS groups mathematics content in three broad categories:
- Number and Algebra
- Measurement and Geometry
- Statistics and Probability
At Holy Spirit our learning and teaching of Mathematics also aims to emphasise problem solving, mathematical literacy, and a sense of inquiry and fun.
