Mathematics

The study of mathematics is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10. 

The study of mathematics provides 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 communicate information in a mathematical form.

The mathematics faculty at Glendale Technology High School aims to develop student's practical mathematical skills and provide them with the ability to apply logic, solve problems, communicate and make informed decisions. Students are assessed during the year to determine which outcomes they have achieved in or are still developing. Students are given feedback from the teacher on their performance on an individual level and grade level.

Students are encouraged to persevere with their studies and seek help from any member of the mathematics faculty when the need arises. Students are able to make time with any teacher to arrange to receive assistance or just to knock on the staff room door either before school, at recess or lunchtime. It is imperative that students are taking responsibility for their own learning and that they strive for their personal best in everything they do.
