Mathematics

At Gleeson College, learning in Mathematics focuses on developing mathematical proficiencies: understanding, fluency, reasoning, and problem-solving. In the Middle School, students study a range of topics under the Australian Curriculum Strands: number and algebra, measurement and geometry, and statistics and probability. The BYOD (bring your own device) program at the College means students have access to digital and online resources to support and enhance their mathematics learning, including online textbooks for Years 7-10, Desmos, Geogebra, and Excel.

In Year 10, students and their families can choose the level of Mathematics students learn: Mathematical Methods, General Mathematics, or Essential Mathematics (SACE Stage 1, by invitation only). This choice can reduce options available to students in Years 11 & 12. Please refer to the curriculum handbook for more information.

To achieve their SACE, all students must achieve a C- or higher in at least one 10 or 12 credit SACE Mathematics subject. This is typically achieved during Semester 1 of Year 11.
