Mathematics Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum: Mathematics is organised around the interaction of three content strands (number and algebra, measurement and geometry, and statistics and probability) and four proficiency strands (understanding, fluency, problem-solving and reasoning.

At RMSC the content and proficiency strands have been used as the basis for writing IBMYP units of work. Each unit is structured to explore a statement of inquiry within a global context.

Robotics and programming is introduced as a practical STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) experience of how mathematical, science and technology can be applied in everyday life and continue to shape our world.
Scientific Calculators are an essential requirement in mathematics courses in the Middle Years
