Numeracy

It is vital to be numerate in today's society and thus we explicitly teach concepts and strategies to ensure that all students develop high level numeracy skills.
The mathematic program at Grovedale West Primary School is  based on the AusVELS Curriculum. 
Our teachers explicitly teach and encourage students to develop and effectively use mental computation strategies in all their mathematical work.  Children are encouraged to become fluent in their number skills in order to assist them in more complex mathematical operations.  The children learn in various groupings during maths sessions, either individually, in small groups or whole class. Authentic learning experiences are provided to enable students to transfer their skills and knowledge into real-life practice. 
The EMU Maths intervention program is also provided for identified at risk students in Year One.
