Mathematics learning at in the Middle and Senior Years aims to ensure that students are confident users and communicators of mathematics, who are able to investigate, represent and interpret a variety of mathematical situations. Our mathematics curriculum teaches students to understand and use the various components of mathematics as well as value the importance of mathematics in daily life.
In the Middle Years, students develop an increasingly sophisticated understanding of mathematical concepts and fluency with processes and are able to solve problems and reason mathematically. They do this through hands on explorations and technology and are assessed through a variety of different means.
In the Senior Years, students have the option of studying prevocational mathematics, mathematics A, B or C in line with the Queensland Senior Curriculum. Mathematics in senior years has a greater focus on providing students with the mathematical skills and reasoning they need in future study, work and society. While the mathematics studied generally becomes more theoretical and abstract in senior, where possible, tasks are related to real life situations.
Students who are working well below their cohort in mathematics may be offered the opportunity to partake in the Emmaus program where the mathematical teaching and learning is slower and focused on key skills applied in concrete situations.
There are also many opportunities for extension in mathematics at the De La Salle campus. Some of which include the Australian Mathematics Competition stage, maths tournaments and statistic competitions.
