Mathematics and Statistics

Mathematics and Statistics

By studying mathematics and statistics, students develop the ability to think creatively, critically, strategically, and logically.

PRIMARY YEARS 1-6 MATHEMATICS & STATISTICS

Mathematics and statistics is one of the core subjects within the primary years. In a programme delivered by their classroom teacher, students will have daily opportunities to develop their understanding and skills in the following strands:

Number and algebra – Number involves calculating and estimating, using appropriate mental, written, or machine calculation methods in flexible ways. It also involves knowing when it is appropriate to use estimation and being able to discern whether results are reasonable. Algebra involves generalising and representing the patterns and relationships found in numbers, shapes, and measures.

Geometry and measurement – Geometry involves recognising and using the properties and symmetries of shapes and describing position and movement. Measurement involves quantifying the attributes of objects, using appropriate units and instruments. It also involves predicting and calculating rates of change.

Statistics involves identifying problems that can be explored by the use of appropriate data, designing investigations, collecting data, exploring and using patterns and relationships in data, solving problems, and communicating findings. Statistics also involves interpreting statistical information, evaluating data-based arguments, and dealing with uncertainty and variation.
