k6 Mathematics
Mathematics develops students’ thinking, understanding, competence and confidence with numbers, shapes and measurement. Students learn to add, subtract, divide and multiply whole numbers, fractions and decimals. They learn to measure time and calculate with money. They learn geometry, algebra and how to work with data and graphs.
At Salamah College, Mathematics is based on student centred activities which consists of relating key concepts to real life experiences, handson resources, group work, mental computation, higher order thinking skills, reflecting on learning, questioning students’ understanding, and assessment for and of learning.
Learning In Early Numeracy (LIEN) and Learning In Numeracy (LIN) Framework
The practice of learning and teaching Mathematics at Salamah College is based on the latest mathematical research and pedagogical developments. The Learning in Early Numeracy and Learning In Numeracy (LIEN and LIN) programs have been designed to improve student learning outcomes in Mathematics. The LIEN and LIN programs support teachers to develop learning and teaching approaches which place the development of conceptual understanding at the forefront. Teachers use a series of student interviews to identify what each student understands and apply this information to further develop students’ mathematical thinking and dialogue.
The LIEN and LIN Programs assist students to build and extend their mathematical knowledge and give teachers a better understanding of how students learn Mathematics. Teachers plan learning experiences that build upon what students already know and understand. This develops students’ confidence as users of mathematical ideas. Emphasis is placed on the key role that discussion plays in the learning of Numeracy and students are encouraged to use mathematical terms and concepts to help describe their own understanding.
