Australian Mathematics Competition
Participation and performance in this prestigious competition continues to grow each year
and we are proud of our students who enter and do their best.
All students at Braybrook College study mathematics as one of their core subjects from Years 7 to 10. Our curriculum offers a broad range of topics and students engage in problem-solving tasks throughout this time. At Year 10, students are placed into one of three types of mathematics subjects according to their skill level. This is done in order to better prepare students for the pathway they wish to take through VCE.Students at Braybrook College have their numeracy and mathematical needs supported in many ways. These include assisting students in the classroom with online activities such as Mathletics as well as tailored worksheets for individual student needs. Outside of the classroom students are encouraged to get maths help in the numeracy centre at lunchtime where a maths teacher is always present. VCE students are often seen working in groups in the VCE centre where they can also get assistance from tutors. The Mathematics curriculum has been constructed in the following way aligning to the AusVels curriculum leading to VCE and VCAL at year 11 and 12.
