Within every Maths lesson, we strive to develop meaningful, authentic learning in accordance with the areas of Mathematics outlined in the Victorian Curriculum: Number & Algebra, Measurement & Geometry, and Statistics & Probability. Understanding the importance of key ideas in developing students’ conceptual understandings in mathematics.

We recognise that key ideas enable students to make deeper connections between the mathematical concepts and ideas that encompass and link them. We plan for and implement; Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning into teaching and learning programs, giving the students richer mathematical experiences to develop deeper mathematical understanding.

At St Francis de Sales, Mathematics learning is a priority for daily instruction. Lessons are structured to support whole-class explicit instruction, targeted teaching groups, and whole class lesson closure, with a focus on developing mathematical vocabulary.
