Mathematics examines the relationship between things. It is also a useful language for exploring and presenting ideas.
At Melbourne Grammar School, of course, we focus on developing core numeracy skills. However, we also encourage students to think about mathematical ideas and concepts in a broader manner.
We start with simple counting, ratios and geometry at Grimwade House and move into more complex areas, such as algebra, at Wadhurst.
By Senior School, in addition to teaching core mathematical concepts, we ask students to undertake quite creative thinking and apply these concepts in practical scenarios.
