Mathematics - St Patrick's East Gosford


The NSW Board of Studies provides the Mathematics Syllabus K–6 upon which the students’ learning in Maths is based.

The Mathematics K – 6 Syllabus is organised into six strands – one process strand, Working Mathematically, and the five content strands: Number, Patterns and Algebra, Data, Measurement, and Space and Geometry. Working Mathematically encompasses processes that are embedded into the other five strands through the content. Five hours each week is spent on Mathematics.

The School’s ‘Numeracy Plan’ documents our beliefs, strategies and processes for effective teaching and learning in this Key Learning Area. A feature of this plan is the Tracking of Mathematical Learning.
