The study of mathematics is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.
By studying mathematics, students learn to work mathematically – developing fluency, understanding, problem-solving, reasoning and communication skills.
The syllabus consists of the following strands:
- number and algebra
- measurement and geometry
- statistics and probability.
In Year 11 and 12, the study of mathematics is optional. Courses offered include:
- Mathematics Extension 2 (Year 12 only)
- Mathematics Extension 1
- Mathematics Advanced
- Mathematics Standard 2
- Mathematics Standard 1 (Optional HSC examination)
- Mathematics Life Skills.
Maths classes at Evans River offer challenging work and a supportive environment for students.
We encourage students to enter Mathematics competitions and enter teams in regional challenge days and subsidise the entry cost.
Weekly homework sheets are also issued to students to assist students in remembering their work.
All levels of Mathematics are offered in the senior school from a non HSC course up to Extension Maths.
Assessment of student work in years 7-10 occurs on a fortnightly basis with a topic test. Students also receive a project each semester.
