Year 7 and 8 Mathematics
St Dominics College will be running the Intermediate Numeracy Project in Years 7 and 8. The National Numeracy Project aims to help students improve their thinking skills as well as identifying students’ processing abilities and where blocks to thinking are caused by lack of instant recall of basic knowledge. At the core of the Numeracy Development Project is The Number Framework established to help teachers, parents and students to understand the requirement and importance of the Number strand in the Mathematics in the New Zealand Curriculum.
At St Dominic's College all students study mathematics until Year 12 at which point it becomes optional. The school puts a great deal of emphasis on assisting students, regardless of ability, to gain the necessary numeracy skills.
