At Blackburn Lake Primary School we provide children with an awareness of mathematics as it relates to the world in general. It is important that children use mathematics in situations, which are relevant for them. These situations provide opportunities for students to construct their own knowledge of mathematics through conversation, use of materials and thinking about and representing maths in their own way. We provide an effective whole-school approach for enhancing students’ mathematics learning. There are three major areas of study in Mathematics: Number & Algebra, Measurement & Geometry and Statistics & Probability.
