Australian Curriculum MathematicsPeter and social competenceThe elements of personal and social competence relevant to mathematics include the application of mathematical skills for personal purposes, such as the use of timetables, budgeting and personal problem solving, which are all important skills in self-management.


Intercultural understandingIntercultural understanding can be enhanced if students are exposed to a range of cultural traditions in mathematics. For example, through examining Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples perceptions of time and weather patterns, the networks embedded in family relationships and the algebraic concepts inherent in storytelling students broader cultural knowledge is enriched. It is also important for mathematics classes to explore the influences of many cultures in the development of mathematical thinking.S3Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander historiesStudents will explore connections between representations of number and pattern and how they relate to aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. They will investigate time, place, relationships and measurement concepts in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contexts. Students will deepen their understanding of the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples through the application and evaluation of statistical data.S4
