Building on the achievements of our two year intensive Big Idea in Number program, we have this year created Maths Teams in the middle school. Each week for one lesson our Year 7, 8 and 9 students work with others in their class on targeted activities aimed at developing and extending their number skills.
Each team member selects an activity to work on either individually or in a small group. Challenges range from problem solving and interpretation tasks to strategy games and speed quizzes. Students in each class have shown active engagement in the Maths Teams activities and we look forward to seeing how their mathematical knowledge improves throughout the year.
