Maths



Vision for Maths
At Central Park, we want our students to engage in mathematical problem solving, guided by skilled and enthusiastic teachers, with the desired outcome that students will achieve mathematics proficiency, conceptual understanding, fluency of procedure, logical competence, adaptive reasoning, and a universal desire to know more.
We want our children to have the freedom to question every stage of their learning, not being satisfied without the need to investigate and prove to formulate their own opinions and knowledge.
We want our children to use mathematics as an integral part of their studies that feed into all aspects of their current and future life. Finally and most importantly we want to see enjoyment, enthusiasm and excitement as a result of our teaching of mathematics at Central Park.
