Mathematics

At St Francis Xavier Primary School our goal is to equip the students with the Numeracy skills required to function and contribute to society.

Our programs cover the National Curriculum strands of Statistics & Probability, Measurement & Geometry and Number & Algebra. A key resource used in our school is the Origo Stepping Stones Program.  This resource addresses all areas of the National Curriculum.

We encourage the children to use efficient strategies to solve problems, to analyse and reason when solving problems and to apply these skills to new and challenging Mathematical concepts.

As the children participate in focused teaching and engaged learning in Numeracy the classroom teacher continues with ongoing monitoring and assessment in order to inform instruction.
