Mathematics

At Narrogin SHS we recognise that Mathematics has its own value and beauty and we aim to instill in students an appreciation of the elegance and power of mathematical reasoning. Mathematical ideas have evolved across all cultures over thousands of years, and are constantly developing. The curriculum focuses on developing increasingly sophisticated and refined mathematical understanding, fluency, logical reasoning, analytical thought and problem-solving skills. These capabilities enable students to respond to familiar and unfamiliar situations by employing mathematical strategies to make informed decisions and solve problems efficiently.

Learning mathematics creates opportunities for and enriches students with the essential mathematical skills and knowledge in Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability.

In Lower school students study the Australian Curriculum and develop mathematical literacy preparing them for tertiary study and future employment. Mathematics options are offered to all students in Year 9 and Year 10 to complement the specialist mathematics courses offered in SeniorSchool.

In Year 10, Year 11 and Year 12 Narrogin SHS offers students the opportunity to study Curriculum Council endorsed Mathematics and Specialist Mathematics courses at Stages one, two and three which contribute to the West Australian Certificate in Education (WACE) and allow students to obtain an ATAR score for university entrance.
