## About the Learning Area

At Carey Donvale, we follow the AusVELS curriculum; an amalgamation of the Australian Curriculum and the Victorian Essential Learning Standards. The information within this Learning Area details the prescribed content and achievement standards that form the foundation of teaching and learning in Mathematics, and is taken directly from the AusVELS website.

The proficiency strands, Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning, are a set of integral actions that support and underpin the prescribed content of the mathematics curriculum. Students are encouraged to work mathematically and describe how the content of the curriculum should be explored and applied. The content strands through which we develop these key proficiencies are: Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability.

Students work at varying levels of achievement across the curriculum therefore classroom teachers differentiate lessons accordingly. This ensures that the learning needs of all students are met.
