Learning mathematics should never be dull or repetitive. Teachers at CNPS ensure that learning in mathematics is personalised, meaning that students are given work that is suitable for their level of learning.
We also ensure that mathematics is applied to the real world so that students use concrete materials and digital technologies to see maths come to life! Learning occurs both indoors and outdoors, so a maths lesson will often shift into our garden, basketball courts or oval for a memorable lesson.
"The education system must ensure that students not only acquire knowledge but also learn how to apply and adapt this knowledge to a variety of contexts."
- Report from Australia's Chief Scientist.
Teachers prepare lessons in mathematics using the Victorian Curriculum and a school-wide inquiry curriculum planner. Engaging students in Science/STEM programs through hands-on inquiry-based learning tasks, such as designing 3D models using everyday materials, coding using programs like Scratch or constructing a scale model, fosters a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts within real-world contexts.
All students in the school have an individual learning plan (ILP) that is developed by teachers in consultation with students and parents and ensures that all students are working at a level that challenges them.
