Mathematics

Our Numeracy programs are informed by the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF). This framework provides a detailed guide to the development of Numeracy skills across several contexts:

  • Personal and community
  • Workplace and employment
  • Education and training.

The ACSF is used to identify and describe students’ performance in any of the core skill areas. This information is clearly articulated in the student’s Individual Transition Plan (ITP).

We develop students’ numerical skills by using and applying mathematical knowledge and problem solving processes across the three content areas, Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability.

Students develop fluency with basic facts, number sense and vocabulary, and learn strategies to help them solve a range of mathematical problems in real life contexts. The practical real life contexts encourage students to transition towards independence with greater success in work and everyday living.
