At Brunswick South-West Primary School we use a combination of the Australian Curriculum and the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) as a framework for what we teach in Maths.
We believe all students can succeed in numeracy. Our focus is on making maths meaningful. We want students to be able to use their number knowledge to solve problems. Games and concrete materials are used to support learning.
Maths has 5 hours per week of designated teaching time. Maths is also integrated into other learning areas.
We hold a whole school math activity day celebrating 100 days at school.
The school is fortunate to have two maths consultants working with the staff.
