At St Francis Xavier’s we recognise that Mathematics pervades all aspects of our lives. It has applications in many human activities, crossing cultural and linguistic boundaries to provide a universal way of solving problems.

Mathematics plays a crucial role in a rapidly changing world. As competence in Mathematics is integral to successful participation in this changing world, children need to learn, develop proficiency in and become mathematically literate.

Therefore, we strive to provide experiences that promote mathematical thinking, challenge students to use creative and innovative approaches when seeking solutions and build upon a knowledge and understanding of the core concepts.
