At Buninyong Primary School we have a whole school, coordinated approach which sets high expectations for all of our students in numeracy.
Our aim is for each child to acquire mathematical skills and knowledge within a practical, working mathematically framework. We aim to provide opportunities for our students to become numerate whilst gaining an appreciation and enjoyment of mathematics.
Our approach to the teaching of mathematics centres on engaging our students across all areas of the AusVels curriculum. We value and promote the use of ICT within our mathematical classrooms, as well as hands on (authentic learning) and teacher modelling of explicit mathematical strategies.
Our teachers assess and monitor student achievement throughout the year in order to identify each student’s needs in Mathematics; allowing the teacher to plan for future instruction and to support their students to set learning goals. Students who require extra support with their learning are catered for through our Maths Intervention Program Quicksmart
Regular extension opportunities are provided to students through our partnerships with a local secondary school and the Mathematicians in Schools Program.
