Making maths count at Junior School

What do Pythagoras, Newton, Turing, Einstein and Sydenham Junior School students all have in common?

The answer is, of course, that they are all marvelous mathematicians who are committed to developing their knowledge and understanding of number, shape and pattern through investigation and enquiry.

Girls from Year 1 to Year 4 recently enjoyed a fantastic day of Maths workshops. The day brought to life the properties of shape, space and measurement through interactive and collaborative teamwork.

Providing real-life contexts in which to explore mathematical concepts supports the school’s approach to teaching mathematics.
