At Nativity, students are supported to become numerate by developing the knowledge and skills to use mathematics confidently across all learning areas and more broadly, in their lives. Students are encouraged to recognise mathematics in the world, and they are explicitly taught a wide range of mathematical knowledge and skills. Students are encouraged to enjoy the study of mathematics by using a range of teaching approaches and materials, including ICT’s. Students who are highly numerate will become successful learners at school and in their lives beyond school, giving them the attitudes and skills necessary for them to become active participants in their family, community and in the workforce.
