Mathematics

Mathematics

Scientist Richard Dawkins profoundly stated about society that “it has become almost a cliche to remark that nobody boasts of ignorance of literature, but it is socially acceptable to boast ignorance of science and proudly claim incompetence in mathematics.”

We are changing that impression at John Willcock College. We do not accept the claim that success isn’t possible in Mathematics. Every student can make a difference in their lives with Mathematics and improve their knowledge.

With the full implementation of National Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting at John Willcock College, we are preparing the students for further success in study and future employment.

NATIONAL CURRICULUM STRANDS

Number and algebra

Students use number and operations and the relationships between them efficiently and flexibly. They can also recognise and construct patterns, use algebraic symbols, diagrams and graphs to solve problems.

Statistics and probability

Students recognise and analyse data and draw inferences. They represent, summarise and interpret data. They develop critical evaluations of statistical information.

Measurement and geometry

Students develop their understanding of size, shape, relative position and movement of two-dimensional figures in the plane and three dimensional objects in space. They make meaningful measurements of quantities, choosing appropriate metric units of measurement.
