Learning and Teaching in Mathematics encompasses the following strands:

**Number and Algebra**

• develop efficient strategies to calculate numbers

• recognize and describe patterns and relationships between mathematics concepts

**Measurement and Geometry**

• identify and visualize the attributes of shapes and objects

• explore measurement concepts and geometric relationships

• apply formulas, strategies and geometric reasoning to problem solve

**Statistics and Probability**

• collect, represent, analyse, interpret and evaluate data

• assign and use probabilities when analysing data

• make sound judgements about problem solving

**Working Mathematically**

In all strands and sub-strands of Mathematics, students engage in reasoning, questioning, applying strategies, communicating and reflecting.

**Targeted Mathematics Teacher**

At St Joseph’s we have a dedicated Targeting Mathematics Teacher whose role it is to enhance mathematical understanding throughout the School. This person undertakes professional development with the staff and aims to improve both practice and understanding of both teachers and students.
