Learning mathematics creates opportunities for and enriches the lives of all Australians.
Mathematics has its own value and beauty . Mathematical ideas have evolved across all cultures over thousands of years, and are constantly developing.
Digital technologies are facilitating this expansion of ideas and providing access to new tools for continuing mathematical exploration and invention. The curriculum focuses on developing increasingly sophisticated and refined mathematical understanding, fluency, logical reasoning, analytical thought and problem-solving skills. These capabilities enable students to respond to familiar and unfamiliar situations by employing mathematical strategies to make informed decisions and solve problems efficiently
