Numeracy

Children at Miramar Central School will be thinkers, talkers, sense makers, problem solvers who collaborate together to contribute to their own and others’ learning, engagement and success.

The 3 foundations of numeracy taught at primary school are: Number & Algebra, Geometry & Measurement and Statistics

At Miramar Central, numeracy is a core subject which is also integrated across the daily programme e.g. cooking, collecting data for science. We believe numeracy should be practised and learnt in real-life context to enrich the understanding of mathematical concepts. 

Numeracy focus at Miramar Central School

* Financial Literacy with ASB 
 A fun and engaging programme where students learn the fundamentals of money in four different stages - from identifying needs and wants and learning to save, right through to budgeting - giving them a solid foundation to build on.

Bi-annual Numberthon
We run a numberthon competition every 2nd year to focus on student's basic facts (+ - x ÷ ) and to fundraise for the school. It is a great way for all students to get involved and we always see fantastic improvement on basic facts scores across the school!
