Welcome to 2023

The Mathematics faculty at Moruya High School is an effective and dynamic team who nurture the intellectual, mathematical development and personal wellbeing of all our students. Our approach with every student, is a student-centred explicit teaching style. All students are encouraged to develop their mathematics skills thorough a variety of activities with formative tasks and formal assessment with timely and appropriate feedback.

By studying mathematics, students learn to work mathematically – developing fluency, understanding, problem-solving, reasoning and communication skills.

The syllabus consists of the following strands:

  • number and algebra
  • measurement and geometry
  • statistics and probability.

In Year 11 and 12 the courses offered include:

  • Mathematics Extension 2 (Year 12 only)
  • Mathematics Extension 1
  • Mathematics Advanced
  • Mathematics Standard 2
  • Mathematics Standard 1 (Optional HSC examination)
  • Mathematics Numeracy.

Mathematics is a mandatory course that is studied in each of Years 7–10 with at least 400 hours to be completed by the end of Year 10. 

Flexible classrooms

All classrooms now have whiteboards and blackboards for students to work on and standup furniture in some classrooms.

The aim is to increase engagement, productivity, student centred learning and peer tutoring.

Research has shown that standing up improves our ability to think and collaborate, and you burn more calories too!
