At Debney Meadows Primary, Mathematics Workshops are aligned to the Victorian curriculum and are organised around the three content strands of Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Within maths sessions, students may work independently, in pairs or small groups. These flexible structures enable us to deliver a personalised learning approach that is differentiated to each student’s ability.
The staff work collaboratively to ensure our students are taught in a way that is meaningful, by giving them hands-on learning opportunities to solve real-life, open-ended investigations where possible. This approach nurtures the development of students who are self-motivated and confident mathematicians through the implementation of investigations as well as explicit formal instruction. Numeracy skills and knowledge are explicitly taught so that students can efficiently and creatively apply their understanding and reasoning in a variety of situations during investigations and inquiry.
