“God uses mathematics in everything He makes. He makes things in multiples of sevens, elevens, and forties. Everything that God does, He does according to mathematics: the writing of His Bible, the making of Arcturus and establishing the circuit of the earth. He imparts some of that wonderful knowledge to us that we may know something about His grace and love for us in this respect.” Asa Sparks


Students grow in awareness that God created a world of logic and order. Students develop skills in areas of Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Using hands-on learning experiences, such as games and group discussions they apply Mathematical concepts to everyday life. They recognise, model, read, write and order numbers to 100. Students’ partition numbers using place value. The aim is for students to develop a deep understanding of number. Using critical and creative thinking skills they are encouraged to think flexibly about and to apply problem solving strategies to everyday situations.
