Mathematics and Statistics consist of three strands:
Number and Algebra – Involves calculating and estimating, using appropriate strategies and methods in flexible ways. Algebra involves understanding patterns and relationships found in numbers shapes and measures.
Geometry and Measurement – Geometry involves recognising properties and symmetries of shapes and describing position and movement. Measurement involves using appropriate units to predict and calculate.
Statistics – involves solving problems using appropriate data, – designing investigations, collecting data, finding relationships and trends and communicating findings.
