Math is more than memorizing formulas and doing calculations. Math involves:
- Highly practical and hands-on problems and skills
- Rich problem-solving activities in collaboration with your peers
- Some problems that will stretch your understanding to the abstract and theoretical
- Using technology to develop, demonstrate and communicate your mathematical understandings
After reviewing a number of data sets regarding how our students are doing in math, we have determined that a strong focus on "arithmetic" will be the main area we practice on our School Development Plan as it relates to mathematics.
"Arithmetic is the fundamental of mathematics that includes the operations of numbers. These operations are addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Arithmetic is one of the important branches of mathematics, that lays the foundation of the subject ‘Maths’, for students."
