Teaching and learning through hands on, concrete materials allows for students to better understand and ignite a passion for problem solving through Mathematics. At Maramba Primary, we run a hands-on approach to teaching Mathematics through Top Ten, a program which is centered on student inquiry, problem solving, hands-on, engaging lessons that students absolutely love.
Math lessons are taught every day. We aim to develop the confidence of all students in everyday problem solving skills through explicit teaching and integration in all curriculum areas. Whilst basic skills such as computation and number facts are key elements of our program, a problem solving opportunities ensure students learn to use their number skills in real life context.
Teachers use ongoing assessment tools to monitor individual learning needs and are confident in developing differentiated mathematical learning tasks, which suit the needs of all students.
