Mathematics teaches children how to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to calculate, reason and solve problems. It enables them to understand relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives.

Bronte School’s objectives in the teaching of mathematics are:

  • To promote enjoyment of learning through practical activity, exploration and discussion;
  • To promote confidence and competence with numbers and the number system;
  • To develop mental agility and quick recall of basic mathematical facts;
  • To develop the ability to solve problems through decision-making and reasoning in a range of contexts;
  • To develop a practical understanding of the ways in which information is gathered and presented;
  • To explore features of shape and space, and develop measuring skills in a range of contexts;
  • To record work neatly and systematically;
  • To develop confidence in and appropriate use of mathematical equipment;
  • To help children understand the importance of mathematics in everyday life.
