The Year 7 course in Mathematics is designed to strike an appropriate balance between increasing students’ level of proficiency in core mathematical areas and introducing them to new topics such as algebra and co-ordinate geometry. Extension is offered in the classroom on a daily basis and also through the Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians run by the Australian Mathematics Trust. Help is available from the Inclusive Education Team for students who need extra assistance.
Inclusive Education Mathematics: Inclusive Education Teacher-Assistants are available to help students in most need.
Challenge Mathematics: Students in Years 7 – 10 are encouraged to enter the Mathematics Challenge Program conducted through the Australian Mathematics Trust.
