The syllabus consists of the following strands:

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

Maths Mastermind Day

To celebrate National Literacy and Numeracy Week, LEPS hold an annual Maths Mastermind Day. Students rotate through activities planned by the teachers on their grade, aimed at providing opportunities to engage in creative problem solving tasks and have fun with maths. The students visit different classrooms and work together to solve mathematical problems.

Maths in the Community

Each year, as part of the successful Maths in the Community program, parents and members of the local community speak with our senior students about the importance of mathematics. These volunteers share how mathematics is used in their occupations and engage our students with their knowledge and expertise. From these sessions, students can see how integral mathematics is to our everyday lives.
