Our Mathematics Program encourages and promotes the development of mathematical skills and knowledge to enable children to participate positively, confidently and competently in their daily lives. Students will develop an understanding of the importance and the dynamic role mathematics plays in our society. Skills and understandings developed during the school years will be applied in further studies and future employment. Staff at Lara Lake Primary continue to update their skills through further training and professional development. Teachers in the Prep to Year 4 will continue to use a powerful assessment tool in the form of the Early Years Numeracy Interview. This interview is conducted on a one on one basis and creates for the class teacher a very effective snapshot of student’s understandings in the areas of Number, Measurement and Space and also the strategies students have developed in these areas. It is certainly an exciting time to be involved in Mathematics at Lara Lake Primary School.
