Mathematics

Head Teacher – Stacy Spoulos

The study of mathematics provides opportunities for students to become analytical, logical and critical thinkers to enable them to make informed decisions and solve problems efficiently. The ability to make informed decisions, and to interpret and apply mathematics in a variety of contexts, is an essential component of students’ preparation for life in the twenty-first century.

The Mathematics faculty at Doonside Technology High School is committed to providing students with challenging and engaging lessons that incorporate the numeracy and literacy skills required to be successful in mathematics. Our focus is on developing students’ knowledge and understanding of mathematics by providing opportunities for students to learn to describe and apply patterns and relationships; reason, predict and solve problems; calculate accurately both mentally and in written form; estimate and measure; and interpret and communicate information presented in numerical, geometrical, graphical, statistical and algebraic forms.

Mathematics is offered to all students from year 7 to year 12. Students in year 9 and 10 follow pathways in stage 5 according to their capabilities. In year 11 and 12, students can undertake studies in Mathematics General 1 and 2, Mathematics, Extension 1 and 2.
