Mathematics

Mathematics is taught daily at Meadowbank School and is also integrated, where appropriate, into concept studies. Mathematics encompasses the teaching of number and algebra as well as statistics, geometry and measurement. Number is separated into the two areas of strategy and knowledge.  Each of these is taught in stages that increase in number size and complexity. For further information on the stages see; http://nzmaths.co.nz/number-information

Teaching in mathematics comprises both new learning and regular maintenance. Rich tasks and word problems are used to link concepts to everyday life.  Students benefit from solving problems to get a much better feel for what mathematics is all about, what it can do and how it can be used. Instruction is given both as a whole class and in small flexible groups to allow for differentiation.
