The Mathematics Curriculum in Primary and Lower What are the Strands of the Primary Mathematics Curriculum? The Strands represent the main areas or domains of learning in mathematics. The Primary Mathematics Curriculum has five Strands: Algebra, Data and Chance, Measures, Number, Shape and Space.
TutorsOZ offers a breadth of tutoring options for Math tuition. We provide maths tutoring for students aged from Kinder to Year 12. Our programs cater for all students aged from Kinder to Year 12. We employ a very specific methodology in teaching Math that establish strong foundations for our students.
OUR SUBJECT FOCUS
- The Primary Years curriculum (K-6) aims to foster strong foundations of mathematics skills in mental and worded math problems.
- The Middle Years curriculum (7-10) aims to refine skills in calculus to navigate and excel across curriculum topics.
- The Senior Years curriculum (11-12) is targeted at HSC and IB outcomes. Our successful track record is evident in employing a targeted strategy that boosts results and confidence.
At TutorsOZ , our highly skilled Math tutors have a strong background in mathematics. This is to guide students to achieve strong foundation knowledge in this subject. Our focus is to create an efficient, effective and positive learning environment that make Math fun, engaging and achievable. Our methodology is a proven, world-wide approach that applies a step-by-step guide for remedial to extension students who achieve excellent results in National and school exams and finally, their ATAR.
AREAS OF CONCENTRATION
- Understand the best approach to study and answer exam style questions.
- Develop a deep understanding and evaluation of curriculum outcomes.
- Excel in a range of practice exam scenarios.
- Assess and apply formulas, techniques and developed skills.
- Time management skills.
The goals of the secondary mathematics curriculum are as follows:
- Enable students to develop mathematical conceptualization, inquiry, reasoning, and communication skills and the ability to use mathematics to formulate and solve problems in everyday life, as well as in mathematical contexts
- Enable students to manipulate numbers, symbols, and other mathematical objects
- Help students develop number, symbol, and spatial sense, as well as a sense of measurement and the capability to appreciate structures and patterns
- Help students develop positive attitudes toward mathematics and the ability to appreciate the aesthetic nature and cultural aspects of mathematics
At the junior (lower) secondary level, the mathematics curriculum further integrates the five content areas taught in the primary grades into three main learning areas: Number and Algebra; Measurement, Shape, and Space; and Data Handling.21 Exhibit 2 presents the mathematics topics taught in each content area at the junior (lower) secondary level.
