Mathematics Policy


At Karama School we aim to ensure high-quality mathematics education for all students. Learning mathematics creates the opportunity to enrich lives and society. It provides the capacity and confidence to meet the demands of learning, home, community, work, and civic life. It ensures preparation of a future workforce ready to contribute effectively and competitively in a continuously-changing global world.

Our vision of high quality mathematics includes conceptual understanding, problem solving, making connections across representations and mathematical concepts, and engaging in reasoning and argumentation necessary for everyday life. Mathematics is a core subject and forms a regular part of the daily program.

The Australian Curriculum: Mathematics aims to ensure that students:

  • are confident, creative users and communicators of mathematics, able to investigate, represent and interpret situations in their personal and work lives and as active citizens
  • develop an increasingly sophisticated understanding of mathematical concepts and fluency with processes, and are able to pose and solve problems and reason in number and algebra, measurement and geometry, and statistics and probability
  • recognise connections between the areas of mathematics and other disciplines and appreciate mathematics as an accessible and enjoyable discipline to study.
