Congratulations to Year 9 on completing their final NAPLAN! Year 8 will continue the numeracy questions provided at the start of each lesson, with Year 7 also starting numeracy questions next term.
Students are required to have their own personal physical calculator, separate from their other devices for all mathematics lessons. A single calculator can last students their entire 7-12 schooling, as most allow batteries to be changed when necessary. The list of calculators approved for the HSC can be found at NESA’s approved calculators website. We recommend the Casio FX-82AU plus II, which is the calculator most staff will be using. The Abacus calculators are very similar to Casio, and most staff are also familiar with the Sharp calculator range and able to assist students.
Completion of work
Every Mathematics student has access to a list in their OneNote of exactly what classwork needs to be done and their progress towards completing that. It is expected that students are regularly checking and updating their Completion of Work (COW) trackers and catching up on any missed classwork.
Students have access to optional weekly homework in Mathspace that is tracked by teachers and is comprised of a small number of mixed revision questions. A number of students are sitting at 100% completion to date! Congratulations to those students who are setting themselves up for success in their future studies.
