The Mathematics Faculties at Hastings Secondary College are dynamic faculties which aim to foster the intellectual mathematical development of all students. They strive to do so by developing students’ mathematical thinking, competence, understanding, problem solving ability and application of the subject in everyday situations.
Teachers cater to individual students’ strengths and interests and designate students into classes best suited to their needs. Parental feedback is always welcomed and valued to achieve the best possible learning and social experience for their child.
New technologies are embraced within the mathematical courses and this strengthens curriculum perspectives such as Literacy and Creative Thinking.
Talented students are actively encouraged to undertake the more difficult curriculum options and to participate in competitions such as the Australian Mathematics Competition.
They are extended with enrichment material, groupwork, class discussions and explore mathematical concepts in the real world.
