At Koondrook Primary School, Mathematics is divided into the following areas:
Number and Algebra
 Number and place value
 Fractions and decimals
 Real numbers
 Money and financial mathematics
 Patterns and algebra
 Linear and nonlinear relationships
Measurement and Geometry
 Using units of measurement
 Shape
 Geometric reasoning
 Location and transformation
 Pythagoras and trigonometry
Statistics and Probability
 Chance
 Data representation and interpretation
Top 10 Maths
At Koondrook Primary School we also use the Top Ten Maths Program in our classrooms. Top Ten was founded by teachers and numeracy leaders (and is still whollyowned by active primary teachers) to fill a gap they saw for sequential handson units to support them with their Maths planning. A fun and engaging resource used to teach Maths in a meaningful, exciting and highimpact way, without having to resort to worksheets or onedimensional technology. All units significantly use visual and kinesthetic learning for the Maths sessions, with literacy and STEM hooks. Developmentallysequenced, userfriendly unit plans with detailed handson lessons for every critical skill throughout the early years. Diagnostic and formative assessments highlight pointsofneed.
Mathematics Lessons
Mathematics lessons at Koondrook Primary begin with a warm up activity followed by whole class focus. Students then move on to work individually or in small focus groups. At the end of the session, students have the opportunity to reflect and share what they have learnt.
Equipment
Our Mathematics program uses a wide range of resources. Resources include; counters, calculators, attribute blocks, dice, rulers, clocks and software programs to enhance mathematical skills
Assessment
A variety of assessment tasks are used by teachers including observations, anecdotal notes, work samples and tests.
All students in Prep – 6 are assessed using the Number Fluency Interview in Term 2 and 4.
Mathematics Online Interview  This is a oneonone interview where students are required to solve mathematical problems and explain the strategies they used.
Students in Grades 3 & 5 are assessed using NAPLAN tests (National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy).
Students in Grades 36 are assessed using On Demand testing.
