The Mathematics Curriculum at Banyan Fields Primary School is based on the Victorian Curriculum. 

Lessons are planned to develop skills and mathematical understandings in fluency & language, logical reasoning, analytical thought and problem solving. Students’ individual abilities are monitored using formal and ongoing assessment practices in order to provide learning opportunities that caters for the identified needs of each student. We are focused on developing student understandings of mathematical concepts by providing opportunities for consolidation and  application of learning through authentic experiences.
