Parent Maths Evening

It was so wonderful to see so many parents at our Maths Parent Evening which was held on Thursday 9 September in our school hall. The focus of the evening was to present to parents, how learning in Maths has changed over the last 20 years, the research behind how students learn maths, how we teach maths at Woonona and how parents can best support their child's learning in maths. Thank you to all the parents who attended but also, to our many wonderful staff who ran workshops on the night.

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.
