Mathematics provides students with access to important mathematical ideas, knowledge and skills that they will draw on in their personal and work lives. The curriculum also provides students, as life-long learners, with the basis on which further study and research in mathematics and applications in many other fields are built.
The Mathematics curriculum focuses on developing increasingly sophisticated and refined mathematical understanding, fluency, reasoning, modelling and problem-solving. These capabilities enable students to respond to familiar and unfamiliar situations by employing mathematics to make informed decisions and solve problems efficiently.
At Tallangatta Secondary College, students have flexibility in their choice of Mathematics class. They are provided with opportunities for advancement into a higher level or consolidation in a lower level rather than just at their year level. As such, many of our middle years Mathematics classes will have students from three different year levels enrolled in the class. For students in Year 10, they are also provided with opportunities to enroll in a VCE Mathematics or VCAL Numeracy class.
Our Mathematics Curriculum meets the requirements of the Victorian Curriculum and will look like: 2020 Maths Curriculum Handout
