Curriculum - Numeracy at KPS

Numeracy

At Kalgoorlie Primary School, we teach numeracy content in line with the Australian Curriculum; providing students with essential mathematical skills and knowledge in;

·         Number and Algebra

·         Measurement and Geometry, and

·         Statistics and Probability

Teachers at KPS plan collaboratively to implement our whole school approaches to Mathematics instruction. We utilise explicit instructional methods to assist students in the acquisition of number facts, and teach a range of mental and written problem solving strategies. Students are encouraged to practice their mental computation strategies and incentives are provided through the ‘Clever Calculator’ awards and the whole school mental maths competition.

Students’ progress and achievement is closely monitored through the application of our whole school assessment schedule and subsequent analysis of results.

For further information about the Mathematics plan in your child’s classroom, please make an appointment to meet with the classroom teacher.
