The Australian Curriculum underpins Mathematics Instruction here at Redeemer. This is supported through the RLCB Australian Curriculum Aligned Number Fact Recall Program designed to develop automaticity in this area. Students in Years 1-3 have 24/7 access to Mathletics while students in Years 4-6 transition to the Maths Pathway program. Maths Pathway is fully Australian Curriculum aligned. It is a tool to assist teachers to differentiate Math programs for every student ensuring that students develop foundational concepts and a positive mindset about Mathematics.
