The study of mathematics is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10. 

By studying mathematics, students learn to work mathematically – developing fluency, understanding, problem-solving, reasoning and communication skills.

The syllabus consists of the following strands:

  • number and algebra
  • measurement and geometry
  • statistics and probability.

Mental computation

Simply producing correct answers quickly is not entirely what "Mental Computation" is all about. It is important that students develop mental processes used to achieve the answer too. To develop mental computation in the classroom, teachers encourage students to explain how they arrived at their answers and to compare their strategies with those of other students. At Cromer, we encourage the use of Mathletics to develop these processes.

Count me in too

Count Me In Too is an innovative numeracy project used at Cromer. It assists teachers to broaden their knowledge of how children learn mathematics by focusing on the strategies students use to solve arithmetic tasks.

Parents count too

Talking with your children and listening to their ideas can help them in becoming confident and enthusiastic users of Mathematics.
