The Numeracy Program at Silverton Primary School aims to develop the confidence of all students in everyday problem solving skills through explicit teaching and integration in all curriculum areas. All areas of the Victorian curriculum are investigated including Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry and Statistics and Probability.
Maths Investigations allow students to explore and apply mathematical concepts of the Victorian Curriculum to their everyday lives.
All students attend weekly workshop classes which are designed to meet the individual needs of all students in a smaller group setting. These sessions aim to build knowledge; while increasing skills and confidence.
Extension and Intervention
The varying needs of all students are met through the use of extension and intervention programs. These various programs are delivered by specialist teachers who aim to address the specific needs of all children. (For example in the G.R.I.N program – Getting Ready in Numeracy)
