Mathematics plays a pivotal role in many aspects of our daily life. At St. Anthony’s Catholic Primary School the curriculum focuses on developing mathematical understanding, fluency, logical reasoning, and problem-solving skills.

By studying Mathematics, students develop knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical concepts and their use within the classroom and beyond.  At St Anthony’s Primary School students are engaged in five hours of mathematics per week, where our focus is to enable automaticity in the basics so students are confident when working with more complex problems. We explicitly teach the concepts and skills needed for students to be proficient mathematicians. We believe that if students have sound knowledge of the fundamentals of mathematics, they will enjoy and appreciate the study of number and algebra, statistics and probability as well as measurement and space.
