Mathematics

Mathematics education deals with the acquiring of mathematical skills, interpreting and communicating quantitative and logical ideas accurately. The Numeracy program is divided into three major areas:

  • Number and Algebra
  • Measurement and Geometry
  • Statistics and Probability

In the early years, concrete materials are used extensively as are the students’ own life experiences. Students become comfortable with formal systems and precise mathematical meanings. They learn to develop expertise in adding, subtracting and counting in a range of intervals. In addition, the application of knowledge to solve problems is developed.
