Numeracy

 

Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving, Reasoning

 

At Kismet Park Primary School, our Mathematics curriculum is based on the Victorian Curriculum Mathematics domain. It is organised around the interaction of three content strands and four proficiency strands. The content strands are Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. The proficiency strands, which describe how content is explored or developed are Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving, and Reasoning.

 

Numeracy is the knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions that students need in order to use mathematics in a wide range of real-life situations. Kismet Park Primary School believes that students need the opportunity to be actively involved in the learning of mathematics through the use of oral language, concrete materials and recording ideas in ways that make sense to them.

 

Project based learning takes place in the older year levels for students to apply a variety of skills to real world problems. Collaboration is a key component of exploring mathematics in our school so students can be exposed to a variety of strategies and high-level mathematical discussions. Students’ mathematical skills and understandings are developed so that they can confidently and competently participate in everyday life.
